The lights are on
Ubisoft recently sent out e-mails to those who played the newest Call of Jaurez: The Cartel to find out what fans would like to see in a sequel.The Cartel did not do well critically, scoring a 47 on metacritic, so it's a bit surprising to see Ubisoft gathering information for a sequel. Especially when you consider the other recent project from the same developer Techland was Dead Island, a much more successful release, scoring and 80 on metacritic. You would think it would be putting all of its resources towards a sequel for that game.
The survey asks oddly specific plot related questions like whether players would prefer a story about, "rescuing an innocent man about to be hanged up," or, "having a gun duel in the empty main street of a town against your worst enemy," among other options.
After the success of Red Dead Redemption, it was a surprise to see the newest Juarez take place in modern times. If the survey leads to a new Juarez title, it looks like they will be returning to the old west.

Mexico called, they are not pleased. But this is a great teaching tool for ICE members.
Best. Series. Ever
Honestly, if they took the basic concepts of The Cartel (3 player co-op and the secret missions were interesting ideas), and put them in a game with better mechanics and a more interesting story, I would buy it.
Personally, I'd like to see Techland and Deep Silver polish Dead Island up. Get some better voice actors, smooth out the visuals and cutscenes and I think we have a recipe for success
How bout a good game 'slaps knee'
What's more surprising than Ubisoft wanting a sequel is that people actually played The Cartel.
And I would think TechLand would have gone off on a love affair now with Deep Silver due to the success of Dead Island.
And like you said Kyle, It was odd to see it take a modern approach, granted, The Cartel was probably already in development before Red Dead was due out for some time.
What a surprise.
I wish they went back to what made the two previous games nice, the western theme.
I have only played The Cartel for 10 minutes, but it felt like ***, unfortunately, because i think we all know Techland can do SO much better.
I'm guessing the respondents will reply to "What would you like to see in a Call of Juarez sequel?" with "Anything that has absolutely nothing to do with The Cartel game would be a drastic improvement"
I have a suggestion: more interesting gameplay.
