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."
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…
