Why on earth did this never pan out?
A 30-minute gameplay video surfaced online of a Goldeneye remake for the Xbox Live Arcade. Microsoft at one point had plans to bring the classic N64 game to the Xbox. Story goes Rare studios were working remaking Goldeneye for the Xbox 360 back in 2007, unfortunately, had to shut down due to outside interruptions. The footage in the video below is of unfinished gameplay, see what the game could’ve been.
It’s still likely this could pan out in the future. Next year Goldeneye N64 will celebrate its 20th Anniversary, and it’ll be nice to see the game get a proper remake and return, to today’s current consoles.
The video was uploaded by YouTuber: Rare Thief. Much appreciated.
