360 Call of Juarez sounding in summer

Ubisoft and Techland's Western shooter does next-gen jig, will ride side-saddle to stores with PC edition.

Back in 2005, Polish developer Techland (Chrome) announced it was working on Call of Juarez, a first-person shooter set in the American Wild West. Originally, the game was announced for the PC and Xbox. However, right around the time Ubisoft agreed to publish the game last year, the console edition was quietly canceled.

Today, Ubisoft revealed that Call of Juarez is once again saddling up for a console release. Unsurprisingly, given the previous work, the game is set to become the second Western-themed shooter on the Xbox 360, after the tepidly received launch title Gun. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's interview with Techland's director of development, Pawel Zawodny.

Ubisoft also revealed the release window for Call of Juarez--the game will come to both the 360 and PC this summer. No rating information is available, but online retailer GameStop is listing the two products for $59.99 and $39.99, respectively.

I hope this is good. I enjoyed GUN for the most part. I'm looking forward to this one as well.

@ International: You tell me to grow up, yet you cannot handle a simple comment from me? Quit being so defensive. ;) BTW, I only plan on renting the game.

@LosDaddie: Another exclusive for the great, industry-leading Xbox360!! Erm...PC? Should I put "Another exclusive for the REAL leader" for all PC-only games? Should I put "Well, at least I can play it with PROPER controls (keyboard+mouse)" each time? Should I rub in your face I pay $20 LESS each time something is overpriced on the 360 (or any other console for that matter)? Just grow up! @ElectrolightSH: I can only think of 2 reasons. 1. the PC community is just a LOT bigger, so easier to make money (but why ask $40 when you can sell it for $60...) 2. a lot of illegal downloads for the PC, so the higher the price, the less sales... (most likely I guess)

That's Bull**** that the PC version is $20 cheaper even though it's the same game! I am not going to buy this game and because of **** like this I just may download it from P2P and get it for free.

Too bad Call of Juarez wasn't rated that high on the PC... there needs to be at least one really good Old West Shooter, but most of them are just kinda good... :(

Finally a real western and not just a port of an O.G. like some other high profile title.

"This game is damn hard to run on pc". How do you know dude? It's not even out yet! Anyway, why would a game be harder to run on pc? With Quad Core... your PC is effectively 5, 6, 7, maybe even 10 times the machine your 360 is! So how in the hell would any game be harder to run on PC then a consule.... THIS IS THE AGE OF WINDOWS VISTA, BOW BEFORE QUAD CORE CONSULES!!!

Since it's already out in Europe, I know the game is good. Can't wait to get it for the 360. We actually need more western themed shooters, on every platform!

Good news, I like western games. I really liked GUN, so I hope this is even better.

As long as it isn't as bad as Gun, and $40 is a nice price.

I honestly thought this game had been canceled. Best of luck to the developers so they can get it out this time.
