Activision registers GoldenEye 007 Reloaded domain names

Publishing giant's latest URLs hint that new title in esteemed shooter franchise is on the way; no official word yet from Activision.

Last November, Activision's GoldenEye 007 for the Wii garnered a strong critical reception for its Daniel Craig-led campaign mode and its deathmatch multiplayer option, a staple of the lauded 1997 N64 original. Now, it appears Activision is gunning for another new entry in the series.

It appears Activision is taking another shot at GoldenEye.

The publisher has grabbed a slew of new domain names (as spotted by Internet sleuth Superannuation) that suggest it's working on a new game called GoldenEye 007 Reloaded. The domain names registered by Activision are: GoldenEyeReloadedGame.com, GoldenEye007GameReloaded.com, GoldenEye007Reloaded.com, and GoldenEyeReloaded007.com.

Unfortunately, further information on GoldenEye 007 Reloaded is not available, and as of press time, Activision has not responded to GameSpot's request for comment or clarification on the matter.

Another new James Bond game reportedly in development is a title based on the upcoming Bond film, tentatively named Bond 23. That game has not been made official by Activision, but it is expected to arrive alongside the new film in November of next year.

For more on the most recent entry in the GoldenEye series, check out GameSpot's review of GoldenEye 007 for the Wii.

@ nini200 retro has nothing on what rareware used to be. retro can keep the new donkey kong with its shocking waggle controls.

If you folks want the same game "retooled" then the good people that originally developed it (Rare) should re make it.. last i heard they are now owned by Microsoft.

I was extremely disappointed in the redone version of GoldenEye, I was silly enough to expect a retooling of the original and not something completely different altogether. Maybe this "Reloaded" is just that? A remake of 007 pure?

I wish someone would take the formula from Goldeneye 007 N64 (Not the plotline but how the gameplay was programed back in the day) and amplifed it into a rediculous game and more challenging. Yea, the gameplay should look very similer to the N64 game but it should have nothing to do on the movie licened game.

it is time to put the n64 version on virtual console

so what we are probably looking at here is, generic shooter built using the call of duty engine, with 'goldeneye' slapped on the cover to try and make it sell, great........

Just give me a straight port of the original for my 3DS and I'm sold!

Please don't mess it up. Either leave it alone or make it really good. The Wii one was very meh. I just don't know if any remake will ever capture the glory of Goldeneye 64.

My GOD Activision just rack off already! let Rare deliver it's PROPER completed HD goldeneye 007 remake and stop using lawsuits to block it while you pump out these cash-in sub-par goldeneye games! Let us have the ONE TRUE Goldeneye already!

@nintendoboy16 Ah yes, you're right, that's it. They are now Crytek UK, they haven't really done much though...

@steveguttenberg Free Radical went bankrupt I believe, they can't afford to make another game.

I'll stick with Goldeneye: Source. The true remake of Goldeneye.

And here I was thinking Activision couldn't possibly capitalize on Goldeneye any more.

Okay, let the hate mail begin. Nintendo still owns rights to GoldenEye games. Simply put, this means no GoldenEye for PS3 or 360. Furthermore, Nintendo still owns rights for the original GoldenEye game. That will not be making it's way to 360 or PS3 either. My prediction is that it'll be another GoldenEye Wii game... maybe just an updated version of the current with bonus content or something like that. Let's not forget that it is entirely possible that this may be a GoldenEye for the 3DS... Dream on fanboys, this one is stuck to Nintendo. =P

Love JB games, hopefully it comes out on PS3/X360 and not just Wii.

@n64nut Thats very possible and if it is, the Wii better get its own version of Perfect Dark.

Rare seems to be handling more 360 Avatar-like software than actual games these days. I'm betting that this Reloaded is an XBLA/PSN version of the original GoldenEye.

Where is Rareware now anyway? They go broke?

nini200

I just want to point out a few things: First thing: If PS3 and 360 get Goldeneye, the Wii/WiiU should get a new version of Perfect Dark. Its only fair. Second thing: Most of you talking about milking will be the first ones to buy the game just like you do COD. Third thing: Activision has a gold mine with COD. If you had a super successful series (regardless of if its the same thing or not), Would you stop making it because a few people claim that you are milking it? I dont think so. Fourth thing: Rare is not the same company it was when they were with Nintendo. Alot of members left and formed Free Radical which makes TimeSplitters. If Free Radical made a new Goldeneye, I believe it'd be a very similar experience to the original. Fifth thing: Retro Studios has basically replaced the Rare we knew. Retro is just as good if not better than the original Rare. If anybody needs to do a new Goldeneye/Perfect Dark, it NEEDS to be Retro Studios.

So where's Free Radical, or whatever it is the old Rare team members call themselves now? The people who made Goldeneye 64 made it what it was, not James Bond. Why can't those guys make another game? Attach whatever characters you want to it, it'll be better than newimprovedgoldeneye007reloaded.

@TheJamin The Rareware that we have today has changed drastically over the past decade. If they could screw up Banjo-Kazooie I shudder to think what they would do to goldeneye.

remake or no remake. if it's not made by rareware. it's gonna suck.

@smoke_dog_4ever "The remake was totally wasted as a Wii exclusive where there ISN'T a strong FPS market as compared to the 360, PS3, and PC." Yet lacking FPS games on the Wii is one of the reasons Goldeneye is on there. Like Tatsunoko vs Capcom is on the Wii because it also lacks fighting games that aren't Super Smash Bros.

It's either for Wii, Wii U or 3DS, it can't be for 360 or PS3 because Nintendo owns the rights to the games.

Give it up, put goldeneye 007 to rest, everytime I hear that this game is coming out again I see it as a disgrace to the original. Rareware made a great game, no one will compare to it, not even the original studio would be able to replicate it now.

They forgot to register one more which someone might take soon: 007GoldenEyeReloaded.com

Goldeneye for Wii is great so I hope they make another good entry next time...namely a LONGER one.

An HD version of the original with multiplayer would suffice and actually be the best thing they could do with it. The Wii version tried something new and was complete crap.

I liked the one on wii but nothing beats the original n64 game. They should bring that back.

Back in 1997 if you told me a new Golden Eye game was coming out every year I would think that is the coolest thing ever. I hear that now and realize how stupid it is to milk the same thing every year.

And so it begins. Another terrible milking brought forward by our generation.
