In a GDC Europe post-mortem of N64 classic Goldeneye 007, as reported by IGN, director Martin Hollis revealed a troubled development history for the system-seller. Highlights include the team building an on-rails shooter because it didn’t know what kind of controller the then-new console would have, and chucking the famous multiplayer in at the last moment. The game took 32 months to make, well over deadline. Interesting stuff. Goldeneye 007 has never been released via console networks thanks to the transfer of the Bond license, but a modern re-imagining was released by Activision in 2010.

“There’s always someone with some exclusivity agreement, so there’s lots of lawyers,” he said. “I’m not going to hold my breath. I’d love it to happen, but I can’t see it.”
