Call Of Juarez Updates Facebook After 5 Year Hiatus, Teases Gunslinger Remaster
The original Gunslinger released way back in 2013, via Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and Steam. It followed the story of Silas Greaves - a famous bounty hunter from the 1880s - and was set to be the final instalment to the Call of Juarez series... Or so we thought.
Will all the hype surrounding this year's major Wild West title, Red Dead Redemption 2, now is either the best or worst time for developers Techland to announce a new game, but do they care? Or COJ fans? I don't think so.
As said, the Call of Juarez Facebook page had a bit of a makeover, with an updated profile picture, cover photo, and post all suggesting a new release is on the way.
We don't think it will be a sequel, however, because Techland probably would've thrown a '2' in there somewhere. Instead, an updated logo with "Gunslinger" features on the revamped page, and so does the phrase "Legends Never Die."
There's also a picture of what appears to be the game's original protagonist, with the caption: "I haven't been here in many years. Name's Silas Greaves." Who needs Arthur Morgan, anyway?

Whilst there's been no official confirmation from Techland, fans are happily speculating amongst themselves what the surprise posts could mean.
One commenter said "it will be remastered. but if they give us a second gunslinger game well its a win win," whilst another added "Finally, I'm sick of Red Dead this and that. I want Wild West arcade action and only CoJ can deliver."
Some fans even forgot the page existed: "What? I like a Call of Juarez Facebook page? Is this the first time you post something in the last 10 years ? :sweat_smile::joy:."
But what do you think about this news? Would you like to see the series revived? Sequel or remaster? Has Red Dead 2 stole your Wild West heart? Let us know.
We'll keep you updated with a release date for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger (remaster/2) if and when Techland reveal more information.
