The lights are on
Update: Halo series developer 343 Industries has reportedly denied that a Halo 2 Anniversary Edition is currently in the works.
The developer reportedly quashed the rumor via an internal company resource for retailers called Microsoft ExpertZone. "We are not working on that at this time. We are kind of busy," said an unidentified 343 representative.
Original Story: According to the rumor section of the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine, a remake of Halo 2 is currently in development at 343 Industries.
According to the magazine, "Following the success of remake Halo Anniversary, 343 Industries has now started development of Halo 2 Anniversary." There is no real evidence or sources to substantiate the claim, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see Halo 2 get a high-definition remake. Maybe a remake could afford Halo 2 the opportunity to have a real ending.

Iagree with Brandon.
If it's 40 bucks, like the first redo was, then this is a definite buy. I always played Halo 2 at a friends, and never owned the game myself.
Yes, yes, YES!!! Halo 2 is my favorite multiplayer game of all time. Maybe because it was my first, but either way this NEEDS to happen. I miss Halo 2.
That would be pretty awesome!
That'd be cool actually, since I have yet to play Halo 3, so I was planning on playing 1 and 2 again before I did.
This way I can just play both remakes instead.
Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god Oh my god. I adore Halo 2 Multiplayer :D
I would buy it. I own all halos even anniversary and soon halo 4 .
i hope the rumors are true :)
Please make it happen, this is the best classic multiplayer gaming ever in the living room.
I think Microsoft mentioned they planned on doing this project in the leadup to the first Anniversary, so this doesn't surprise me. And I'm sure in 2017, we'll get Halo 3 Anniversary, and in 2022 we'll get Halo 4 Anniversary. Haha, they'll never let it die
They could make the remake on PlayStation 3... just a thought.
I know people may not want it, but I really hope the "glitches" will return, like BrB, BxR, and double shot. That would be so perfect.
oh boy! more halo! seriously, microsoft needs more than halo and gears of war to tout...
Eh, last time they remade Halo they completely missed the point. I would never buy this unless the multiplayer was true to Halo 2. Even then I don't know, I seem to remember Halo 2 devolving into overcharged plasma pistol and Battle Rifle. Duel weilding was useless and gimped any weapon meant to be used that way.
