Goldeneye Coming to the Wii….Possibly

October 28, 2009


Is a revitalised GoldenEye coming to the Nintendo Wii?

According to the CV of one Craig Peck, animator at Eurocom Entertainment Software, a new GoldenEye game is in development for the Nintendo Wii. Activision had leaked their plans to release a new Bond game earlier in the year, with 2010 as its intended release date. Peck’s CV is the first indication that it might be another GoldenEye video game entry.


The N64 game GoldenEye 007, developed by Rare in 1997, is regarded as a classic (proxy mines on bunker anyone?), revered by critics and fans alike. The 2006 game GoldenEye: Rogue Agent, developed by EA, was not so well received, to say the least.

Pecks CV reads:

“Eurocom Entertainment Software, Derby, United Kingdom: July 09 – Sept 09 Animator – GoldenEye 2010 (Wii) – Animator on Activision’s James Bond series for the Nintendo Wii.”

Bizarre is confirmed to be developing the next Bond game, with Treyarch taking a break from the franchise. Although unlikely (how many rumours like this have circulated in recent memory?) it’s still possible that Activision has called on Eurocom to work on the Wii game, as they did with Quantum of Solace.

First round, pistols only, no Oddjobs!
