Yes, the Call of Juarez franchise may have been tainted with a pretty poor sequel, but Techland came back better than ever, and delivered the best entry in the series yet. Call of Juarez: Gunslinger really puts the wild into the wild west, and shows that you don’t need a full-blown sequel to right all the wrongs of your predecessor.
Ubisoft has released a new trailer for their upcoming free-to-play PC dungeon crawler, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot. The trailer features the second of three playable characters, The Archer (A.K.A. Blackeye Bowgart).

Not surprisingly, Ubisoft has announced via Twitter that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs will be coming to the Xbox One. Additionally, Bungie has confirmed via Facebook that Destiny will also make its way to Microsoft’s newest console, alongside Eidos-Montreal who confirmed Thief’s appearance.
Regarding Thief, General Manager Stephane D’Astous commented the following:
“The team at Eidos-Montreal is thrilled to confirm that Thief is coming to Xbox One. The next generation of home consoles allow us to create the best and the most immersive Thief game ever. The feedback we have received so far is simply amazing and we can’t wait to show more of Thief at E3 this year.”

Ubisoft has released another trailer for the upcoming Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The trailer shows some cinematic co-op gameplay from what, we can assume to be, one of the co-op missions.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist offers two player co-op mode with 4 mission types, 14 maps with 2 player split-screen.
Play as Sam Fisher or Isaac Briggs (a CIA operative) and work as a duo: help your teammate access parts of the maps you couldn’t access on your own, create your own tactics depending on your Play Style and watch each other’s back as you complete missions.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist is scheduled for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC on August 20 (North America), August 22 (Australia and Europe), and August 23 (UK).
It seems the upcoming title 1666 is seeing an ill fate with its cancellation.
In a recent press release describing Ubisoft’s sales and earning figures for 2012-13 fiscal year, the publisher mentions “two titles that have not yet been announced, including one new creation.”
Ubisoft has released a report on its sales and earning figures for 2012-13 fiscal year, and it seems like a lot of people enjoyed three of the publisher’s major franchises – Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and Just Dance, as the company’s annual sales are up 18%.
