It took three years to remake GoldenEye in Far Cry 5 just for Ubisoft to do it

A Far Cry fan spent three years and around 1,400 hours completely remaking the Nintendo 64 classic GoldenEye using Far Cry 5’s Arcade map editor, only for Ubisoft to remove it as soon as it was completed, thanks to “claims for copyright infringement “of the MGM rights holder.

YouTuber Krollywood Thoroughly recreated GoldenEye, still the best James Bond game and one of the best FPS games of all time, within Far Cry 5 and he was basically done with it save for the two bonus levels, only to find they were gone. earlier this week. In a statement from Ubisoft (thanks kotaku), the publisher explained that the maps “have been removed due to claims of copyright infringement of a right [sic] holder ”, that is, MGM, which somehow found out about the remake (thanks Kotaku... it’s a prank).

“I’m very sad,” Krollywood told Kotaku, “not because of me or because of the work I’ve done in the last three years, [but] by players who want to play or bought Far Cry just to play my levels. “

Aside from wasted hours, it’s not entirely clear how this fan creation violates copyright concerns. In addition to being based on the level design of the 24-year-old N64 game, all assets used were from Far Cry 5, and Krollywood did not use any direct connection to any James Bond items.

In other parts of the world of GoldenEye-inspired projects, modders are making a virtual reality version within Half-Life: Alyx, and a full remake within Unreal Engine 4 is still in development, albeit without the GoldenEye name. There’s even a GoldenEye Doom mod too.
