Update: Ubisoft has officially announced Call of Juarez: The Cartel, which is being developed by Techland (Bound in Blood creator) and will be available this summer for next-gen consoles and PC. We can look forward to a "new and modern setting."

Original Story:

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood really wasn't a bad game at all, and we believe shooter fans would welcome another entry in the series.

And although nothing is official just yet, a reader has informed us that Ubisoft has registered a new domain, entitled Call-Of-Juarez-The-Cartel , which obviously indicates an upcoming installment in the moderately well-received franchise. Until Red Dead Redemption wowed the world, Call of Juarez was the only decent Western-themed fun a fan could have, and it worked out well for a while. There was never anything too impressive or too polished about those titles, but the last effort – Bound in Blood – didn't sport any major hitches or glitches, and for the most part, was fun to play. And besides, these are straight-up shooters so the gameplay is quite different from Rockstar's RDR; the two names could appeal to different groups of people. At any rate, a new Call of Juarez doesn't sound like a bad idea; maybe the developers can iron out a few kinks and turn it into a top-quality FPS. Cross your fingers.

We're just trying to be optimistic, you know? Just please fix the dueling system. It has so much promise…

By far, my favorite western themed game was Call of Juarez on the PS3.

Looking forward to any news on a sequel.

I just read that it's actually not in the old wild west but set in the Modern Wild West.

Ubisoft’s Caroline Stevens said: “Call of Juarez The Cartel is an action-packed shooter game with a strong story, interesting characters and a wide variety of gameplay options.

“The game will bring the best elements of the Wild West into modern times with a very gritty and relevant plot.”

I came so close to playing the first one but I ended up taking out the disc to finish up FFXIII. Hence the 0% progress in the trophies. I should fire it up though. Anyone still playing it online?

There's still a fair number of people playing online. Enough so you won't have trouble getting the Platinum, but not so much that you can fire it up any time you want and find a full room right away. Which is disappointing, since Bound in Blood has really excellent online modes. (and I hate online, usually)

Umm… the "new and modern setting" has me thinking that this will become another Modern Warfare.

Sweeet! I enjoyed absolutely everything about Bound in Blood! If they can bring the same quality to next title, I'm in.

The modern setting worries me just a bit, but a good game is a good game. I hope they stick with what worked in the last game, and don't try to copy Rockstar.
