Scrapped GoldenEye 007 game 'remaster' leaks online


A highly sought-after remaster of the hit James Bond video game GoldenEye 007 has been leaked online more than a decade after it was cancelled.


Footage of the unreleased game has occasionally been posted on YouTube over the last 10 years, tantalising fans who were desperate to see it released.

It also developed a remaster of GoldenEye 007, which retained the full single player campaign and popular multiplayer mode.

Composer Grant Kirkhope told news site Video Games Chronicle: "The main reason it didn't happen was because there were too many stakeholders.
