Goldeneye 007 | James Bond video game trademark renewed

Trademark's renewal, along with the leak of the remaster achievements on Xbox, have fueled rumors of a possible return of one of James Bond’s finest.

Goldeneye 007 | James Bond video game trademark renewed

The Nintendo 64 classic is still missing, but hope is the last thing ever lost, especially when the video game trademark has just been renewed. This is published by VGC, which states that Danjaq,LLC, the company that has many of the licenses and characters of the James Bond franchise, extended the rights to use the trademark on March 15, 2022. No official announcement has been made yet.

Anyway, the existence of a remastered version that was canceled at the time is completely real. Sources consulted by VGC assure that the announcement of the remastered version of GoldenEye was imminent, but it is possible that the invasion of Ukraine by Russia may alter these plans. The story of this movie (and video game) contains many narrative elements related to the Russians. On the other hand, this year coincides with the 60th anniversary of the James Bond films.

Some suspicious achievements

Last January, Goldeneye 007's Xbox achievements were listed on True Achievements, something that did not go unnoticed. The almost complete version of the remastering was developed for Xbox 360 and part of the game has even been leaked on the net. When the product was nearing completion, they ran into some licensing issues and the product never saw the light of day. Perhaps this situation will change soon, although it is still too early to say anything.

Goldeneye 007 was released on Nintendo 64 and is considered one of the most outstanding console shooters. It is based on the movie of the same name, with Pierce Brosnan as the MI6 secret agent. After the success of the title, and some years later, Electronic Arts released a game with the same name, although it actually had nothing to do with the original title. years later, at the time when Activision Blizzard had the license, it published a sort of free remake of the title.
