A GoldenEye 007 remaster on Xbox appears more and more likely, as Microsoft now has the game’s achievements listed on its official website.
As spotted by Video Games Chronicle, industry insider @Wario64 on Twitter shared the achievements (below) and a link to their listing online, with the webpage still functioning as normal as of the time of writing.
Both single and multiplayer objectives are listed for the beloved game – which was originally released on the Nintendo 64 in 1997 – with GoldenEye 007 granting players 1,000 Gamerscore in total, as is the norm for fully-fledged games.
A remaster has been long-rumoured, and all but confirmed time and time again – most recently in January when Xbox achievement tracking website TrueAchievements also listed the game. An updated version of the original GoldenEye 007 was confirmed to be in development for the Xbox 360’s Live Arcade at developer Rare but was cancelled due to licensing issues, and files for the game leaked online in February 2021.
It’s been a long time since we received a fully-fledged Bond game, but we seem to be seeing a loosening of the famously tight restrictions on the license. Along with a seeming return to GoldenEye, Hitman developer Io Interactive is also working on Project 007, a totally original new story for the super-spy. We think the developer is a perfect fit for the franchise.
