Rumor: Halo 2 HD Remake In The Works At 343i

According to a rumor from the latest issue of the Official Xbox Magazine UK, it appears that Bungie's beloved followup to Halo: Combat Evolved may be getting a similar Anniversary Edition. The rumor reads: "Following the success of remake Halo Anniversary, 343 Industries has now started development of Halo 2 Anniversary.”

If this proves to be true, and the game is in fact another anniversary title, it would have to launch in 2014 to make it a full ten years since the release of Halo 2, at which point you'd think the successor to the Xbox 360 would be out. Perhaps we'll see a next-gen version of Halo 2 with even slicker graphics than expected? Count me in!

IGN reached out to Microsoft for confirmation, but only received the predictable response: "Our focus right now is on developing Halo 4. Beyond that, we do not comment on rumors or speculation.”

Let us know whether or not you'd be up for a Halo 2 remake in the comments below.
