It wasn't a copyright issue to begin with, the lack of single player comes more from a lack of resources. Not enough devs, engine limitations, or just not wanting to put the multiplayer on the backburner to dedicate enough resources to working on a project of that size. Everything from the maps to AI would have to be completely reworked, and that's basically like starting from scratch.

There was never an issue with copyright, I don't know where people got that from. Nintendo had no legal take on GoldenEye since... forever.

Singleplayer is not doable because the lack of resources as Spry explained on the post above.

Yeah, the copyright to mod for not-for-profit is usually never an issue...

But some companies tend to conflate "We hold the copyright" with "these fools better not even seem to profit off our IP" and so we were always putting out statements and stances that sought to dispel ANY notion we were infringing outside of fair use within copyrights :)

And there was a time when people really (I mean, really. I'd get countless inquiries and emails per week from fans back in the day) wanted to fund us to continue to develop -with a mind/focus to eventually do SP- and that kind of crowd-sourced energy could have attracted people to be involved and retain our best contributors and generally be more productive/dedicated. For sure.

I wonder if 007 might appear in the N64 Mini Classic console game list.
