GoldenEye 007 Remaster Might Be Announced In The "Next Couple Of Weeks"

GoldenEye 007 remaster rumours have infiltrated the internet for a while, however, we've got no concrete evidence as of yet. Word of a remaster has been going on for so long that the satellite dish from the movie collapsed, and plans for it to be rebuilt have already been put in motion.

As spotted by VGC, VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb is of the opinion that Microsoft might announce a remaster of the N64 classic pretty soon. “I think that Microsoft is going to be the one to announce that first,” he said during Giant Bomb's GrubbSnax show. “I think this game is probably coming pretty soon, I’m thinking next couple of weeks.”

Grubb didn't add any more to that, nor did he mention where he got the information from. But his inside information has mostly been spot-on – and he seems pretty confident of this one, so there might be something to it.

The most damning evidence of a GoldenEye 007 remaster was revealed when a list of new achievements for the game were picked up by an achievement tracking site via Xbox Live servers. The list contained 54 achievements, along with a secret one, making up a Gamerscore of 1,000 in total. What's more, the ones unlocking the achievements were employees of Rare, sparking more speculation about the remaster.

The list includes achievements for completing levels on any difficulty, time based tasks, and challenges in the multiplayer. Additionally, these were not the same as the ones revealed in the leak of the canceled XBLA GoldenEye 007 remake.

While there hasn't been any official word on the remaster, the evidence seems to be piling up. And if Grubb is right about the reveal – which he is, more often than not – we won't have to wait too long till we finally get to see a remaster of the N4 classic.

Until then, you can play a fairly modern version of GoldenEye 007 – in Far Cry 5. A dedicated fan painstakingly recreated all 18 levels of the classic, in the level creator tool included in Ubisoft's shooter. A copyright claim by MGM saw the levels get taken down, but they're back with a few tweaks.
