GoldenEye 007 HD Remaster Could Be Confirmed ‘Very Soon’
Another day, another rumor about this still unreleased GoldenEye 007 remaster, whose confirmation should arrive “very soon”.
This time the reports arrive via VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubban industry insider who thinks news about the HD remaster should go public in the “coming weeks”.
“I think Microsoft is going to be the first to announce this,” Grubb said on his show (thanks, VGC). “I think this game will probably happen very soon, I think the next few weeks.”
2022 marks 25 years since the seminal shooter arrived on the Nintendo 64, so the time has definitely come, and let’s not forget that GoldenEye 007 was recently removed from the German list of “media harmful to young people” 24 years after its initial ban.
While banned movies and games are automatically canceled after 25 years, it appears the ban was revoked following a specific request rather than a formality, sparking speculation that the game could soon to be added to the Nintendo eShop in one form or another, mainly because for everything to be sold on Nintendo’s European eShop, it has to be released in Germany because that’s where Nintendo’s European eShop – and the service of Nintendo Switch Online subscription – are based.
Grubb’s tease comes just weeks later achievements for an Xbox version of Goldeneye 007 appeared “out of nowhere”also, although it has not yet been confirmed that it will come to Xbox Series X or Xbox One.
If you can’t wait that long to reconnect with Bond, did you know that nearly all GoldenEye single player stages are now playable in Far Cry 5?
ICYMI, two-hour footage from this canceled GoldenEye remaster of 007 leaked online earlier this time last year. A “long-play” of the canceled classic took us from the start of the play-off to the end credits. The remaster was thought to be released by Microsoft in partnership with Activision after reaching an agreement with Nintendo to remaster the shooter from the original N64 version released in 1997. Unfortunately, the project was scrapped due to security issues. rights, even though it had essentially been completed and was ready for sale.
Hoping the same doesn’t happen to this remaster, huh?
