A few weeks ago Call of Juarez: Gunslinger vanished from Steam but there was a good reason as the game’s developer Techland is now back in control.
Originally published by Ubisoft, the wild west series will be published by Techland moving forwards. Adam Lasoń, CPO at Techland Publishing, said:
“Developed by Techland, the Call of Juarez series received a great reception and support from a huge community of players. As Techland Publishing moves forward as a leading publisher, we are delighted to welcome Call of Juarez: Gunslinger to our publishing division.” He continued: “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”.
To celebrate its return to Steam, 2013’s Gunslinger has been discounted by 33%. Techland plans to bring the series to other digital retailers in the future and more details on that will be revealed later.
One of the games in the series, Bound in Blood which was released in 2009, still appears to still be published by Ubisoft in the listings. This could be an oversight as it sounds like the franchise has moved to Techland entirely.
