You want a Goldeneye Re-Make? YOU CAN’T HANDLE A GOLDENEYE REMAKE!
Well, maybe you can. These prospective box art images, part of an upcoming customer survey from Activision, got leaked to GoNintendo. Mumblings about the re-make have intensified since Activision registered a Goldeneye website, Goldeneyegame.com. Shortly after, word came out that Activision had planned to release the original N64 game as a downloadable, but that it (and presumably any Other Goldeneye projects) were being held up by legal issues revolving around the various licensing agreements required to publish a re-make of a game based on a film franchise…
According to Eurogamer, the new Goldeneye, now a Nintendo exclusive, is out of development limbo and on track to be in stores this holiday season. If that’s even close to true, there will be a HUGE unveiling at E3. So make yourself a martini and keep your eyes peeled, because it seems like good news is on the way.
Cannonized Nintendo 64 shooter “Goldeneye” may very well be getting a new lease on life. According to Thatvideogameblog.com, Activision registered the URL “Goldeneyegame.com” this week. Though the site currently sits empty, rumors are already flying about a potential sequel or re-make of the classic FPS. Though Activision has said that they don’t plan to re-release the original, but they did not completely rule out the possibility. Activision also said that they plan to release a James Bond franchise game during the second half of 2010.
Developer Bizzare Creations is currently working on an original 007 project, “James Bond: Bloodstone”. Rumors have suggested that “Bloodstone” may be a 007 racing game. Though it’s possible that “Bloodstone” is the “Goldeneye Game” the URL refers to, the title has nothing to do with “Goldeneye” and, though Activision has made mistakes in the past, the idea of tarnishing the “Goldeneye” legacy by making a racing game.
