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.

I suppose that is good news.....rather have everyone working on the new trilogy or an entirely new IP but whatever
The real ending to Halo 2 is called Halo 3... Kyle sounds like he hasn't gotten over the "disapointing ending"
Why didn't they get a real ending with the first time it came out?
better come to pc
WOW I AM MORE EXCITED ABOUT THIS THAN HALO 4! But I am still pre-ordering Halo 4 of course :)
Halo 2 is my favorite Halo in the series and an HD remake would so awesome.
HALO 2 FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What's wrong with the ending? I loved it. Halo 2 is my favorite in the Franchise (so far.)
I hope so!
people keep b*tching over halo 2 multiplayer, you can still play online with an app called X-Link KAI. Also the reason why halo CEA didnt have all the maps was because they wanted to release maps that were not already put in hd on the next gen console. so who knows what Halo 2A mp would be like. Either way, I hated playing as the arbiter, it sucked hard core.
I loved the Halo 2 ending.The cliffhanger had me pre-ordering Halo 3 the first chance I got.
Halo 3 WAS the real ending to Halo 2. Granted, it had the weakest possible plot, but you do finish the fight.
I Want to see arbiter armor for my elite for multiplayer!
It will be the best Halo Ever. I've really been hoping for this!
I love how once magazine in the UK claims Halo 2 is in development without providing any proof or even assurance of the veractiy of it's claims and reliability of it's sources (if they have any). Nonetheless I totally believe this is true.
