Call of Juarez: Gunslinger was delisted from Steam on March 30th, 2018. It was presumably removed on Xbox 360 and from the PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3 around the same time. Call of Juarez: The Cartel was also delisted on March 30th on Steam and Xbox 360; it was never released digitally for PlayStation 3. The game returned to sale on Xbox 360 no later than April 10th across all territories. As of that date it had not returned on any other platforms.
The reason for the delisting — which leaves Call of Juarez 2: Bound in Blood as the only title in the series available on all three platforms — is a mystery. As of this writing, Gunslinger was only available to buy digitally through Ubisoft’s uPlay service at a sizable 75% discount. It is possible the game may be removed from uPlay at some point after the sale period. Call of Juarez: The Cartel isn’t offered directly from uPlay at all and its online services were shut down in November of 2017.
Possible causes include a licensing issue with music or other media in the game, an expired agreement between Ubisoft and the game’s developer Techland, or low sales over the last several years.
