More fuel has been thrown on the rumor fire that’s been raging since last year that suggests Activision is working on a Nintendo Wii and DS remake of the Nintendo 64 classic GoldenEye: 007.
Today’s log-o-chatter comes via a source close to Activision who told Eurogamer Activision plans to finally officially reveal the long suspected remake during E3 2010. The game is supposedly being co-developed by n-Space (Toy Story 3) and Eurocom, who worked on the N64 version of The World is Not Enough, and it's expected to be released in November.
The GoldenEye remake talk started up again back in April when Activision registered the domain GoldenEyegame.com. The domain Bloodstonegame.com, which just so happened to be the leaked name of the Bond-based driving game expected to be in development at Bizarre Creations, was also registered.
Then yesterday, various images of concept covers for the GoldenEye game popped up online via GoNintendo. The images reportedly accompanied a survey about the game. Most interesting though is the fact that last October, a former Eurocom staffer’s CV found its way online, and it included a listing for “GoldenEye 2010” for Wii. Clearly, all of these pieces are pointing quite strongly to the game being a go, but until Activision decides to officially announce it, consider all of this just spirited speculation.
Activision hasn't commented about the photos or any of these rumors, but I dropped them a line in case they're feeling feisty, so I'll let you know if I hear anything.
