Techland regains publishing rights for the Call of Juarez franchise

Original developers Techland has regained the publishing rights to the Call of Juarez series from publishers Ubisoft.

Call of Juarez: The Cartel and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger were pulled from online storefront last month, but it appears that this was part of the transference of rights back to Techland, with the company just recently starting work on its own publishing outfit, Techland Publishing. As a result, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger has reappeared in several places, now published by the original developer.

In an announcement, Techland Publishing CPO Adam Lason 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. 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.”

This seems to hint that other games in the series could soon be re-released, too. 

Gunslinger was originally released in 2013, and received decent reviews, with a 79 on Metacritic, and an 8.2 according to user reviews.
