GoldenEye 007, the legendary N64 game from Rare that is one of the most beloved multiplayer experiences for many around the world, may be getting a new life on Xbox after Achievements have been spotted for the game online.
TrueAchievements, a website that tracks Xbox Achievement activity, recently picked up an Achievement list for Goldeneye 007 which had never been seen before. There are 55 Achievements that are worth a total of 1,000 Gamerscore, and that is another hint this may be a new port.
As many may remember, there was an updated version of GoldenEye 007 being developed for Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade that was just about finished before it was canceled due to licensing issues. Back then, XBLA games had a limit of 200 Gamerscore, so seeing GoldenEye 007 with 1,000 Gamerscore is an interesting development.
Furthermore, TrueAchievements' website also reveals that there are only two Xbox accounts that have earned any of these achievements – BIGsheep and xtinamcgrath. By searching for these names, it appears that BIGsheep and xtinamcgrath are Rare employees James Thomas and Christina McGrath.
While this doesn't necessarily mean that a new port of GoldenEye 007 on Xbox consoles is imminent, it is an exciting prospect for fans as we begin the new year.
In February 2021, the game files for Rare's cancelled GoldenEye 007 remaster were shared on the internet, just a month after a full playthrough of the game's campaign was released on YouTube. The demo showed that you could swap between old and new visuals like the Halo remasters and that it could run at 60FPS and can be played in 4K.
While we wait to learn more about this possible port of GoldenEye 007, check out the officially announced Project 007 – a new James Bond game coming from Hitman developer IO Interactive.
