[Update]Master Chief voice actor Steve Downes has toldIGNthat he in fact did not confirm the existence ofHalo 2 Anniversary, and was instead misinterpreted.
What I said was: 'I think you're ahead of yourself on H5. I have read some things on line that you can look forward to a H2 anniversary edition maybe this year, but I have no official information one way or the other.' I was just mentioning some of the things I had read online about Halo 2. I have no idea if there will be an anniversary edition and didn't mean to leave that impression.Could Downes just be trying to cover his butt? It's certainly possible, but to be safe, we'll have to pushHalo 2 Anniversaryback into the rumor bin for the time being.
[Original]Steve Downes, the iconic voice behind Spartan 117 (better known as Master Chief) has revealed that Halo 2 Anniversarywill be launching on Xbox later this year, withHalo 5set to release sometime in 2015.
"I think you may be ahead of yourself on Halo 5," Downes told GameZone. "I wouldn’t expect anything until 2015. What youcanlook forward to this year is an anniversary edition of Halo 2." No word on whether 343i is developing or if Certain Affinity will be handling the remaster, but something tells me the A-team currently has its hands full withHalo 5right now.
Rumors surfaced a few weeks back regarding a remake ofHalo 2in time for the game's tenth anniversary, and today's comment from Downes basically confirms it. Plus, this will buy 343 Industries a bit more time to makeHalo 5the grand new installment gamers are expecting. After all, let's not forget thatHalo 4launched a little over a year ago, so a fall 2014 launch seems a bit premature.
