UPDATE October 10: The Call of Juarez Gunslinger 2 teases have continued with a new video, that gives a direct shout-out to Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2
The video is called 'A Message to Arthur Morgan' - he's the main character of Red Dead Redemption 2 - and features new dialogue spoken by Silas Greaves, the narrator and player character of Call of Juarez Gunslinger. We could be wrong, but the footage looks too clean to be from Gunslinger, so could it be all-new? It certainly is either teasing a sequel, or a remaster.
"Legends, you know, they never die," Silas says in the video, "they change, to come back stronger than ever." This strongly suggests a return of Call of Juarez Gunslinger is imminent, but will it be a sequel or remaster? The last game is only 5 years old and still looks pretty good, plus it's unusual to hire a voice actor for new lines for a simple re-release - and don't forget, the game was only put back on Steam earlier this year (see below).
With Techland having full control of the Call of Juarez license now, and Western games being all the rage thanks to Red Dead Redemption 2, our money is on an announcement coming within the week.
Original Story, October 8: Call of Juarez Gunslinger is a fantastic Western shooter, and a great reboot of the popular Wild West FPS series. Now it looks like Call of Juarez Gunslinger 2 may be getting an announcement soon.
A sequel to 2013's Call of Juarez Gunslinger certainly seems to be teased, and it'd be perfect timing with the build-up of hype to the release of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2.
The tease appeared on the official Call of Juarez Facebook page, which has been updated for the first time since Gunslinger's release in 2013. It shows the image at the top of the page, showing Gunslinger's main character Silas Greaves, along with the quote "Legends Never Die". A second image was uploaded shortly afterwards, with the quote "I haven’t been here in many years. Name’s Silas Greaves."
With all the hype for Red Dead Redemption 2 now would be the perfect time to announce a new Call of Juarez game, which are made by Dying Light developers Techland - who acquired the license from Ubisoft earlier this year and put Gunslinger back on Steam.
Stay tuned for more, but we personally can't wait to see Silas Greaves ride again - and maybe even bump into those dastardly McCall brothers too...
