Cancelled GoldenEye Remaster (Xbox 360)

Recommended Posts

Ages ago, footage leaked regarding a remastered version of GoldenEye that was planned to be released but then got cancelled due to IP licensing issues. 

Someone has gotten access to a copy of the game, which looks to be fairly close to finish (the main thing not working seems to be water in Frigate). Here is the full playthrough of the game:

 

 

The person who got the footage thinks that the game will be released at some point.

 

Main changes in terms of content seem to be more multiplayer options (including more levels) and Dr. Doak has been replaced.

Surprised that it took this long for it to leak! Looks very far along, with only minor bugs in place; so probably a pretty late beta.

Damn shame that it never got released in its time; but at least it’s actually gonna come out in some form now!

It's nice to see some of the single player maps being put in multiplayer. I was hoping they'd do that with the Perfect Dark remaster.

What did Dr Doak do?!

He left Rare to make TimeSplitters.

Did Dr Doak decline to do it again? Or did he decide not to deign the developers with his display?

Rare & Microsoft never secured the rights to re-release this game before going ahead and having the port made at all (which, of course, was incredibly stupid).

They probably never even approached him to even risk having to deal with the legal trappings of having his likeness appear in the game.  The game is already a legal spagettii mess as it is!

Microsoft might even theoretically get into legal trouble if this game gets leaked across the internet; because they didn't have the necessary copyright to even have this port made in the first place.

Damn! DCubed dropping the deets on Dr Doak's disastrous dalliance.
