FAN remake of beloved N64 classic GoldenEye 007 has been in the works for years, with a view to releasing it on the 25 anniversary in 2022. However, team behind GoldenEye 25 has been forced to pivot after receiving a cease and desist letter. Although Project creator Ben Colcough planned to give away the remake of the single-player campaign for free, that wasnt enough to sate original game rights holders. Were sad to announce that weve been kindly asked by the IP holder to cease development of GoldenEye 25, team write on Twitter. This was always in the back of our heads as a possibility but we've tried our best to keep going. MGM and Danjaq asked the team to stop work on the project by August 19, according to composer Yannick Zenhausern, and remove all related social media posts. The GoldenEye 25 Twitter account will be removed by Friday. However, not all of the work that goes into GoldenEye 25 will go to waste. The team plans to keep going with the original game based on all the beloved aspects of our favorite 90s action shooter. Crew set up new Twitter handle, spiesdontdie, for first-person shooter. The GoldenEye name and James Bond characters are off-limits to developers. Therell be a different story, and the team will likely revamp some levels and add new ones. However, developers can continue to use some elements of GoldenEye 007, including watch menu, sound effects, models and textures, gadgets and most weapons. Guns will need different names, though. It is a shame that GoldenEye 25 wo come to light as plan. Other FAN remakes, such as Black Mesa remaster of Half-Life, have made it into the wild. But as the GoldenEye 25 team note, there was always a chance of the hammer falling on the remake, despite MGM and Danjaq allowing other projects to remain live. Theres bit of silver lining in that retooling project can make its way to Steam and perhaps even consoles. Still, for many who were looking forward to GoldenEye 25, theyll be left to wonder what might have been. Update 8 / 11 5: 45PM ET: Twitter handle for the new Project has changed from projectianus to Spiesdontdie. This post has been updated to reflect that.
