Call of Juarez Rights Now Rest With Techland, Gunslinger Back on Steam

The highly-regarded western shooter Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is once again available on Steam after being de-listed a month ago.


The Call of Juarez series has long been a staple of western-themed game aficionados on the PC, going all the way back to Techland’s original release back in 2006. The first Call of Juarez game was notable for being one of the first games to make use of the DirectX 10 graphics API that famously shipped with Windows Vista. The series continued and was ported to consoles in the years following, with the release of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger being the franchise crown jewel. Last month, Gunslinger (and its predecessor CoJ: The Cartel) was removed from Steam. Thankfully, the game is back up for sale now that publishing rights have moved from Ubisoft to the recently renamed Techland Publishing.

Adam Lason, CPO at Techland Publishing, had this to say about the new deal, “As Techland Publishing moves forward as a leading publisher, we are delighted to welcome Call of Juarez: Gunslinger to our publishing division. We would like to thank Ubisoft for its incredible work publishing the Call of Juarez games. We'll continue the great efforts of Ubisoft and support the fans of the Call of Juarez universe in the same dutiful and passionate way."

While Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is available on Steam once again, Call of Juarez: The Cartel is still M.I.A. on the platform and was not mentioned by Techland. There are no current indications of what Techland plans to show at the upcoming E3 2018 show, but a new journey into the old west would surely be welcomed by old fans of the series. The last we heard, the company was working on a pair of AAA titles for future release.
