Rare has responded to a query on its Scribes
blog regarding the long-awaited return of GoldenEye 007 most probably to Xbox Live (lots of details here
on that one).
Basically, in response to "What's happened to GE007?" the response was:
"I suspect we're long past the stage where an agreement was on the cards, but you never know. Stranger things have happened... somewhere... probably."
So, a non-denial/denial with plausible undeniability/ability. In short, don't hold your breath.
