A follow-up of sorts to the extremely popular and groundbreaking GoldenEye 007 was developed by Eurocom and published by Activision for release last year. While most gamers don’t believe that the recent Wii exclusive remake of the Bond game can hold a candle to the N64 classic, it still did reasonably well for Activision, and it seems that they may be gearing up to bring the game onto other consoles. Of course, a successor to the game isn’t out of the question either.
This news surfaced after Activision registered several domains, all relating to something called GoldenEye Reloaded. A total of four domains were registered, which makes it seem like Activision is keen on owning every website that relates to the name GoldenEye Reloaded. “GoldenEyeReloadedGame.com”, “GoldenEyeReloaded007.com”, “GoldenEye007GameReloaded.com” and “GoldenEye007Reloaded.com” were all registered to the timidly-succesful gaming juggernaut, and the most surprising thing about this recent development is that nobody really knows what the game is.
An actual sequel to the the GoldenEye remake released last year is certainly possible, but it’s more likely that GoldenEye 007 is being brought to another system(s). Some speculation in the gaming industryoints towards GoldenEye Reloaded as simply the PlayStation Move version of the game, a probable scenario. The game would certainly look a lot shinier then its Wii counterpart on the more powerful console, and the added accuracy of the PS3’s motion contoles (and even the bonus of trophies) would make it even more irresistible.
Of course, the game may not be exclusive to Move, and as many may remember, the original could be played with a classic controller on the Wii as well. This potentially means that the game could make the jump to Xbox 360 in order to rake in even more cash from the established first-person shooter crowds on either console. Could it even make use of Kinect?
Activision has yet to make an official announcement regarding anything with GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, but fans should expect some more information in the near future.
