Remember that GoldenEye 007 re-release we mentioned a while back? Well, it seems like we could be finding out more about it officially in the next couple of weeks.

That's according to VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb, who said:

I think that Microsoft is going to be the one to announce that first. I think this game is probably coming pretty soon, I'm thinking next couple of weeks.

Grubb's comment echoes what was said by VGC editor and former Playtonic staffer Andy Robinson recently.

We first got a hint that something could be happening with the legendary N64 FPS back in October last year when one of Nintendo Europe's partners successfully managed to un-ban the game in Germany, which led many to speculate that a re-release was on the cards.

Then, the publication of Xbox achievements relating to the game confirmed that it was coming to Microsoft's console at some point. This has led to more speculation that we could see GoldenEye 007 come to Nintendo Switch Online, or as a stand-alone digital release on Switch.

Rare previously remastered the game for the Xbox 360, but it was never released. The beta leaked out onto the web and is playable via emulation or using a modded console.
