Originally released in 1997, GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo 64 is often heralded as one of the most prolific shooters of our time. It was a glowing example of gaming greatness and who could forget the amount of hours that were spent huddling around a TV box with your friends painfully squinting as the screen was split into 4 tiny squares. Well, fans of the game and developers of the fan project ‘GoldenEye 25’ – an unofficial remaster of the game that was heading to PC in this month – have received a cease and desist notice from the IP holder for GoldenEye, MGM. They’re sadly having to stop development of the project and delete their social media accounts for the game.
The GoldenEye 25 twitter account tweeted a statement recently and you can read it below:
Thankfully though, it’s not all doom and gloom. Although the team can’t release their shooter with GoldenEye assets, they are going to be releasing a title under a different project name with different assets. At least their efforts haven’t been completely wasted!
