Rumours have long circulated about a Goldeneye 007 remaster and if this new report is true, we might finally see this revealed in the next few weeks. Following a previous Xbox achievements leak, its now claimed that Microsoft will unveil this HD remaster soon.
Speaking in the GrubbSnax show (transcribed by VGC), VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb claimed Microsoft could announce the Goldeneye 007 remaster in the next few weeks. While Nintendo originally published it, Microsoft bought out the original developers, Rare, back in 2002. Grubb claims:
“I think that Microsoft is going to be the one to announce that first.”
“I think this game is probably coming pretty soon, I’m thinking next couple of weeks.”
Goldeneye 007 Remaster Reveal Could Happen “In the Next Few Weeks”
This follows previous news that Goldeneye 007 had been unbanned in Germany last year, a year earlier than when it would've been automatically reviewed. We previously saw a Goldeneye remake back in 2010 for the Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360, but that was more of a tie-in for the Daniel Craig films.
Currently, there are no legal ways to play the original N64 version of Goldeneye 007 on modern consoles, largely thanks to a complicated rights dispute, so we're hopeful for news soon. Stay tuned to Gfinity for possible updates on the Goldeneye 007 remaster.
