Activision is rumoured to be working on a sequel to Rare's Nintendo 64 classic, GoldenEye, according to Eurogamer.

The GoldenEye sequel has yet to be officially announced, though it's speculated to be unveiled at E3 next week.

The rumour is also supported by concept images supposedly included as part of a product survey sent out by Activision and intercepted by GoNintendo.

Both sources currently have the GoldenEye sequel pegged as a Wii and DS exclusive game, fitting since the original was also a Nintendo exclusive and Nintendo probably still owns some of the rights. The first GoldenEye game was developed by Rare, which is now owned by Microsoft - so there are obvious issues there that may prevent the original developer returning to the franchise.

Supposedly, Activision's GoldenEye will include 4-player splitscreen multiplayer and up to 8-player online. It will also have been developed "from the ground up" for the Wii.

Activision hasn't offered any official comment on the rumours.
