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 am ready to pre-order right now. I sure hope this is one rumor that comes true.
Anyone else recall 343 declaring literally the exact same thing two years ago about Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary.
It's gonna happen, it has to happen. I mean the graphics weren't as old school as Halo Combat Evolved, but still, this just, well has to happen. Even if it doesn't have the graphic swithc thingy, it has to happen.
its going to happen, after they finish poslishing up all their work after halo4 and the new tralier Halo: Forward Unto Dawn, then they might look at halo 2:Anniversary, might though..
Well there goes that.
I think it would be a waste of time. Halo 2 is good enough and them remaking it would take away the "back when games were good" feeling. I mean, some games just aren't meant to be remade, like PONG, if they ever make a remake of that...shoot me, just shoot me.
I would buy that if it had its own multiplayer. Can't believe I literally just bought Halo 2 off Amazon. Still, it was worth it.
It's only a matter of time before it actually does happen.
i think it would be cool since i have never played it before
You know, if they make a Halo 2 Anniversary, they gotta make a Halo 3 anniversary, and then a Reach Anniversary just for the hell of it.
Late entry. A Halo 2 remake would be ideal. I am going through the series again before Halo 4 debuts and Halo 2 is just flaky on the 360. In contrast, the remake of Halo CE was absolutely beautiful. 343 can bring the polish to the great story/game. Someday, maybe they can bring some of that polish to Halo 2 and help solidify a worthy collection on one platform.
not buying this halo 1 remake sucked i bet this one will to be stupid
You should leave these epic games at rest so they will always be an old school great memory.
They better make this before Halo 5 is released!
