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.

Halo 2 is definitely one of the better Halo games. Interested to see where this goes!
Why not wait for next gen? or when it's 20 years?
I wonder if this is a sneaky way of releasing a halo game a year after 4 comes out like cod but in the way EA is doing it with medal of honor and BF.
I'd buy it
Ummmm... DUH!!! HELLO! Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary came out on the ten year mark and Halo 2 came out in 2004 soooooooo I hope you'll can do the math! :)
P.S. Halo 2 Anniversary...... AWESOME!!!!! :)
I have the Vista version and can still play Online multiplayer WITH ACHIEVEMENTS. Take that,vanilla XBL outage! Honestly though, I would still pay for the anniversary version for my xbox 360. Not many play the PC version anyways.
So instead of XBox coming out with something new they are just gonna HD everything instead!
Makes sense I guess, the less money they have to spend the better at this point in the end of the XBox's life cycle!
HALO 2 was my favorite game of the series
Well yeah, they're going to milk it for all its worth.
Add buy it.
They're gonna need to tweak the AI for this one though, the campaign's great, but the AI sucks
Halo 2 has always been my fav!
The crystal ball section in OXM has never once been right.
God they would make some money off this.
I still want to buy Halo Anniversary! Now I'm going to have to buy this too! With Anniversary they had to use the Reach Engine for MP (since CE didnt have it built in) so I wonder what they are going to do with the Halo 2 remake..
Super jumps? Anyone?
Favorite halo game
