I was reading the August issue of Game Informer today, and I noticed something in the bite-size news section. It said 'There's a Halo 2 Anniversary Edition coming'. I know it's not a huge announcement, but I guess we can say it's been confirmed. I can't find any articles about it on the internet, so I took this picture. Sorry about the quality, but the sentence is right in the middle. If anyone finds an article or any more information, please post it so I can make an addition to the OP.

    Posted by: And Im Here Too Posted by: AcedannyK 7 Posted by: And Im Here Too Halo 2 was the low point in the series.LOL You best be kidding. It was awful. A -blam!-ty campaign and buggy multiplayer. The campaign was fine IMO, but campaigns are entirely subjective to the person playing them. The multiplayer was buggy as -blam!- though. It was so gamebreaking that it became funny. And Bungie never fixed any of the bugs in it. And here is where 343 goes down the drain. They'll be stuck remaking games with outdated gameplay

    I'll get it, even if there's no multiplayer. I'd love to see what some parts of Halo 2's campaign look like with modern-day graphics, like the underwater sections in Regret or the caves in the last two arbiter levels.

    The multiplayer will probably be Halo 4 with some couple remakes from Halo 2.

    If H2A is released using halo 4's MP then my theory on 343 redoing the trilogy with "new" halo games Multiplayer as a strawman to disprove the effectiveness of old trilogy sales points will have been proven correct.

    Posted by: OdorousLicense3 They're making Halo 4 and a Halo 2 Anniversary? Halo's an annualized franchise. There needs to be something to fill the gap between Halo 4 and Halo 5. If there is a Halo 2A in 2014, which probably means 2013 won't have a Halo game, then the gap between Halo 2A and Halo 4 will have been the longest since Halo 2 and Halo 3.

    They are likely outsourcing the bulk of the work like they did last time to Certain Affinity and Saber Interactive.

    They would most likely -blam!- it up if they did do a H2 anniversary.

    Posted by: RockdaleRooster Honestly I'd rather them work on the new trilogy than these anniversary games. 343i wouldn't be actually making the game themselves, like with CEA they'd probably just be lending directional and financial support to Sabre Interactive.

One of the worse Halo games, but still not as bad as 2 was. ... Yup.avi. Can't really get much worse than 2.No, your opinion is wrong.Stop feeding the troll/hater

    Not sure if this has been posted yet but I thought it was relavent. This article is about a month old so it's not referring to the rumor discussed in this thread but it means that 343 isn't working on it. Some might then suggest another company is working on it. I don't know how these things work, but I don't think 343 would kill the rumor now only to have it be announced later from a different company. Thoughts?

    Posted by: HTR Blastoise Lowest skill gap? It was the massive auto aim and bullet magnetism made it so every autistic monkey and their grandmother could be an MLGXXXPR0 sniper. I'm baffled you couldn't even get a 50in H3. What do you even know about skill gap that is above colonel level. lolrankflaming What is this? Halo 3 forum circa 2007? After I reached 42 in Halo 3 I honestly stopped caring about rank and played social for the rest of my Halo 3 career. I was actually on par with many of my friends who were 45s and 50s. Hell I was actually wanted by a group of 50s that one of my friends played with that wanted me to help them run ranked btb when it was still around. Also 8 person rumble pit was the worst implementation ever. If rumble pit stayed at 5 people I might have bothered to actually climb the ranks again.

    It will probably be like CEA. Reskinned campaign in HD with a map pack of Halo 2 maps on Halo 4 multiplayer.

    Posted by: Khirna That'd be cool. I never finished Halo 2 because I started with a 360 and hated playing original xbox games on it. I think it is still floating around somewhere.... You poor soul...

    Posted by: Forgewolf Well.. Hopefully this one will have Halo 2 multiplayer This is the one factor that will determine if I purchase the game or not. CEA was a disappointment to me and I wish I hadn't wasted money on it. Hopefully they get it right this time and include it's original multiplayer.

    Posted by: Cmdr DaeFaron Posted by: TFU244 What if they add the Forerunner Ship level.... It'd probably just like HCEA, pretty graphics overlaid on the original game with overall little added. You never know...
