Relisting and Xbox 360 Delisting

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger briefly returned to sale on Xbox 360 no later than April 10th across all territories but was delisted again in May of 2018. It returned to sale on Steam on April 28th, 2018 where it is now published by Techland Publishing. As of June 2018, it has yet to return on PlayStation 3 outside of the European bundle detailed below. The game’s brief return on Xbox 360 was most likely a technical hiccup due to the change in ownership of the Call of Juarez property from Ubisoft to the series’ developer, Techland. The game finally returned to sale on Xbox 360 in August of 2018 according to a post by TrueAchievements.com.

The previous delisting information follows.

 

Delisting

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 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.

 

About the Game

From the dust of a gold mine to the dirt of a saloon, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is a real homage to the Wild West tales. Live the epic and violent journey of a ruthless bounty hunter onto the trail of the West’s most notorious outlaws. Blurring the lines between man and myth, this adventure made of memorable encounters unveils the untold truth behind some of the greatest legends of the Old West.
