GoldenEye 007’s HD port appears set for release after achievements were uncovered on Xbox servers on Sunday, as per Video Games Chronicle.
Internet dataminer Wario64 has shared the fact that achievements for an Xbox version of the Nintendo 64 classic have been found on Microsoft’s servers.
That would suggest that a release appears to be imminent, although a date is not yet set.
The report claims that it was discovered earlier this year that Rare developers were playing an Xbox version of the first-person shooter, because tracking sites such as True Achievements were following heir progress.
It was confirmed last year that Microsoft shelved a completed remaster of the N64 game for the Xbox 360 in 2007 as a result of licencing issues.
It isn’t actually known at this point if GoldenEye 007 will be a full remake or a HD remaster.
The achievement list does confirm that every level from the original game is present, including the two bonus Aztec and Egyptian levels that are only unlocked by completing the game.

It also remains to be seen if the game, if it is released, is an Xbox exclusive or if it will also come to PS5 and Nintendo Switch.
It would make sense for the game to come to the latter platform, given that GoldenEye 007 was initially released onto Nintendo platforms.
GoldenEye 007 first hit shelves way back in 1997, featuring Pierce Brosnan, then James Bond, on the front cover of their North American box art. It pioneered atmospheric single-player missions as well as stealth elements, and also has a multiplayer deathmatch mode that paved the way for the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield.
Microsoft and Nintendo have worked together previously, with some Xbox exclusives releasing on the Nintendo Switch, and Minecraft appearing in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
We’ll keep you informed if there’s any update on a release date or a confirmation.
