Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
Halo 2 Anniversary Rumoured to be in Development at 343 Industries

View author's profile

Ohhhh, yes. The latest reports are saying that Halo 2 Anniversary is reportedly in the works at 343 Industries. The studio is currently focusing most of its efforts on Halo 4, but also has a team dedicated to giving the Xbox classic the HD treatment.

The news comes via the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine UK, which carries the following quote in its rumours section: "Following the success of remake Halo Anniversary, 343 Industries has now started development of Halo 2 Anniversary." Short but sweet.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary released last year, bringing - amongst other things - a glorious high def revamp and a remastered orchestral soundtrack with it. It was, in short, a bit special.

So look out for official confirmation on this, as and when it comes. It may not be the most surprising news, but boy it’s a good ‘un.

Yes! This must happen! First game I ever played on XBL, let's just hope they keep the Halo 2 MP and not tack on a Reach map pack.

Awesome news! Only thing I ask is they give it some time before they release it that way we can all enjoy Halo 4 and its 8GB worth of installments! Hopefully this is true though and I can't wait to hear more news in the coming weeks!

This is my favorite Halo game. However, that was largely due to the fun glitches. I think that this game is far too new to need a new version.

On topic, hopefully it'll be 4 player co-op instead of 2. But, the original was only 2 player split screen, no online, so chances are slim.

I wasn't a fan of 2 but it makes sense why they'd make this one - it's the only other original Xbox Halo game. It's not like they're going to remake Halo 3 in HD, right? (p.s. not looking to start anything with that question)

@25 While you're right on the first account, I wouldn't be putting my bets on a Halo 5 release for 2015. Its been stated that development for Halo 4 stretched as far back as 2009, not too long after 343 was formed and it was announced Bungie would be quitting the franchise. Given that the bigger titles get an average 3 year development cycle, I'd be looking at what we saw with Anniversary and 4, 2014 with H2:A and then Halo 5 in 2015 on the next console. There's every possiblity Halo 2 could be re-released next year, in reality its anyones guess as this is just the first tidbit of info and until 343 reveals more we can only speculate.

I imagine that if this goes the route of Anniversary it will be an add-on for Halo 4 not Reach. But either way that's definitely something they should NOT do. They NEED to keep the original Halo 2 multiplayer. That will be the day I start playing (and enjoying) multiplayer again.

And yes I am all for a return to Halo 2 multiplayer but knowing Moneysoft, it'll be about costs and it'll just be a tack on of the Halo 4 multiplayer, meaning 6 of the best maps from the original put into 4's list of maps.

Here's hoping 343 really and truly hears what the fans want and puts out. However unlikely it might be, let our voices be heard and listened to 343i.

But this is on the pc with achievements already, and not that out of date.
I will still get it of course as it's a great game, but halo: ce anniversary is just that, rereleased with achievements on their 10 year anniversary.
Just doesn't seam right :s

last gen polygons and gameplay dont improve anymore than they were when it was first made.

all these HD remakes suck, the Chronicles of Riddick which is not a mindless shooter or button masher which Halo, God of War, Devil May Cry...ect, then u had SplinterCell which was already made irrelevant with Conviction's gameplay but they didnt even fix the ability to switch camera axis for christ sakes...none of the testers seemed to think that might be an issue or they just didnt want to spend the time to edit some coding

then you had Metal Gear Solid with its outdated cover system mechanic which is a major aspect of the entire game among countless other issues like the fact you're forced to sit thru hours of 1990s era "cut scenes" and then get to go back to playing a 1990s era standard of rather just play actually i dont cause its still all those same issues but in 1080p and 5.1(or was it 7.1 FLAC since its on TEH BLU RAIZE wit so much disc spaice) and i stopped after 30 minutes(of gameplay which probably took 5 REAL hours into "playing" MGS4 since it was 30 seconds of crawl here then 30 minute cutscene-repeat)

but nobody is going to play Halo 2 online for any length of time when you get the same exact gameplay in 3 ODST REACH, or any of the 5 COD games since 2007 (MW1 which is still on Major Nelson top 20)

This is BS. If they bring this back w/ its original multiplayer when they left the original multiplayer out of CEA I'm gonna be pissed. That was the best multiplayer gameplay the Halo franchise ever saw, and the only legitimate reason for a remake of Halo 1, yet they left it out. Halo 1 fans had been asking for Halo 1 on XBL since that piece of crap Halo 2 came out and they got slapped in the face with CEA not featuring real Halo 1 multiplayer. If Halo 2 aniv. comes out with the original multiplayer it will be the final insult for fans of the original.

I agree with #38, Im all for a remake of Halo 2, the remake of Halo 1 was absolutely perfect... apart from the ridiculous ammount of lag when playing co op online. I got used to it in the end (by helping 3 different friends play throught the game) but it would be totally unacceptable if this happened again.

I also wanna get this because its the only Halo Ive never completed Legendary Solo, I always ran out of ammo really early on and got owned by Elites, but this time achievements are at stake so those same Elites are gonna get their arses kicked

Excellent news as far as I'm concerned. I'm guessing a 2014 release on the Xbox 720 (or whatever it's going to be called). It'll be nice to have both original Xbox Halos brought up to the graphical and sound standard of the rest of the series.

If fans ask for it, 343i will eventually respond. We know how many of us loved Halo 2. It's practically the game that started Xbox live. And a ton of us want a HD remake now that we've seen how well 343i did with Halo: CEA.

It won't have its own multiplayer because they wouldn't want to split up the community. It would be better off if they integrated the maps into Halo 4 multiplayer because they will create playlists that make the maps play like Halo 2 multiplayer. They did the same thing with the Anniversary, but everyone was too busy being idiots and complaining to even notice the new playlists...

this was my favorite halo and still is. id love to play this again. but personally i dont think it should have a multiplayer, just the campaign, and the slight discounted price like halo: cea.

Hope this is true! I was one of the unfortunate ones who never got to play Halo 2, so this would frickin' awesome. And I'd also like to add that I'm actually playing CE: Anniversery as I type this, only missing two cheevos... how convenient.

@85 I disagree. With Anniversary, there was no Xbox LIVE multiplayer in the original game in the first place, and they were trying not to add or remove anything big, so they gave a Reach map pack with Halo: CE maps. With Halo 2, I'm sure they will have a separate multiplayer, because they don't want to remove such a huge part.

They should just leave it be, i understood with Halo C.E. , but not halo 2 my childhood game I grew up with. This game is awesome as it is, there is no need for "remastering to the current times".

They should just leave it be on the original xbox, like they should of left the first crysis on the PC. I am now beginning to think that 343 is just gona try to milk the series..

Good news, but the campaign was the weakest in the series. And chances are, they'll do what they did with Halo 1 Anniversary, which is just take some of the good maps from that game and bring them over to whichever Halo is relevant at the time (in this case, it will be Halo 4), instead of actually letting us play Halo 2 MP again, which was the reason everybody loved 2 to start with. I don't just want some of the maps with a tweaked Halo 4 ruleset to "feel" more like Halo 2.

Truthfully in my opinion, there should be no remastering, just turn on the live features for the original and start shipping out new copies of it. Don't need to turn on live for all the other original xbox games just do it for Halo 2 and that would be awesome.

Halo 2 is probably my favorite game of all time, with that said, I hope 343 does it some justice, and leaves the game-play intact.

Actually, leave everything intact. The game is about as close to perfect as a shooter can be.

Anyone feel they should leave the original engine untouched 'if' they do remake this? Part of the fun for me on Halo 2 multiplayer was the glitches lol. I'm not one to cheat in video games, but I never really saw super jumping as cheating. Me and my friends would have custom game lobbies for hours just super jumping and shooting the shit with each other. For me, that was the 'most' fun I've had on Xbox Live to date. While I wish they would've actually implemented super jumping as part of the newer games' engines, sort of as an easter homage to Halo 2, I always knew that was too good to be true. It's a bit dodgy that super jumps were actually "bugs", considering all the steps you had to do to actually pull them off. Crouch in a corner, take 2 steps back, jump backwards and land on a very specific part of the map. I still have a hard to believing that those were accidental additions lol. But yeah, fuck it. Bring it on! If anything, the multiplayer maps alone (Coagulation, Warlock, etc) would be a great addition to Halo 4 and I would most definititely enjoy playing them on classic mode (since I cannot stand Halo as it has evolved, pardon the pun, with all the perks/armor abilities).

@106 That had nothing to do at all with why CE:A didn't have multiplayer. The original game didn't have LIVE multiplayer, and they weren't going to add such a huge thing.

Halo 2 already had it in the original, and this most likely will too. Your point is invalid.

The Halo fan in me who played nothing but Halo 2 on xbox1 live is screaming out in happiness. However, at the same time it is sad because i know it's unlikely they'll keep the original Halo 2 MP and throw in the Halo 4 engine with map remakes......

But then again, Halo 2V is still running. So who knows what could happen.

@106 That's not true, where are you getting your inaccurate information? Halo:CEA didn't have MP added because it didn't have one when it released back in 2001. Halo 2 had MP over LIVE when it released, that's why they will be using Halo 2s MP.

I'm extremely happy with this so long as 343 Industries does not decide to outsource it. Combat Evolved Anniversary was a great game, but it also wasn't - you really could tell it was developed by two studios, with another one trying to coordinate the efforts into something cohesive. As far as quality goes, Combat Evolved Anniversary really failed. Texture pop-in, that problem with invisible walls or intangible object, most of the mocap in the cutscenes, facial animation, the way the "classic mode" feature was implemented, lack of original multiplayer... All of these things could see massive improvements.

-Remove texture pop-in
-Model the anniversary mode so that the new textures actually line up with the old models, so that I'm not shooting a rocket at a tree that I'm trying to take cover behind that's actually much wider than it appears, thus killing myself
-Have whoever did the Reach mocap redo the Anniversary mocap. Seriously, all of Reach's mocap was incredibly well-done, while Anniversary's made Master Chief seem like a huge ham
-Same thing as above with facial animation - in Reach, that was really well-done; while in Anniversary, faces were nowhere near as...dynamic. They were immersion-breaking for me, to be honest
-Improve the "classic mode" feature so that the game doesn't have to black out whenever you use it. The way this works with the human brain negates its effect - you're supposed to be able to use it for direct comparisons, but that little 5-second period of blackness causes your brain to forget finer details. Look at games like 2008's Prince of Persia, which had its entire area change when you removed the Corruption - except the entire area would transform before your very eyes. Have any Halo Anniversary games do this too, please
-Put in the original multiplayer

All of the above, in my eyes, would definitely warrant the $40 price tag, which Halo Anniversary in its current form is not actually worth. Right now it's kind of a sloppy hodgepodge of rushed development woes. If Halo 2 Anniversary was to turn out like Combat Evolved Anniversary, I'm not so sure I'd want it.

Additionally, if 343 Industries wants to put out a $60 title:

-Add campaign scoring
-Add Theater mode
-Add Forge mode (both are probably quite impossible)
-Add online stat tracking, but across the board (multiplayer AND campaign)

@132 Everyone knows Halo:CE had splitscreen MP, it didn't have any matchmaking MP and Halo 2 does have. They would have had to added all that in Halo:CEA for MP, they wouldn't have to do that for Halo 2.

@134 This game will probably be released year after Halo 4, not around the same time. I seriously doubt 343i is worried about splitting the HUGE Halo community, and it's not like people won't be able to play both MPs. 343i would be crazy to not include the original MP, it's what fans will be expecting and wanting.

@135 It's his opinion, it's not a fact, he doesn't know anymore than anybody else about the game. I doubt people will be butt-hurt by it.

I look forward this. But I hope this one will have more numbers of achievements then last anniversary and less Legendary difficulty for each type of achievements to earns. This is bit bored achievements list because too much for Legendary. I am fine with it but bored list and yah very challenges though.

Last anniversary is great game compare to original Xbox version.

Let hope 2nd anniversary to have better achievements list with less Legendary achievements. :)

Preorder 2nd anniversary when date confirm. :)

Say what you want about Halo (I love the early ones. The rest less so), you can't deny that the remake of CE was the best HD remake ever attempted-actually making new graphics rather than some lazy HD textures. Only Black Mesa Source comes close but that's been in development for ages.

Hmmm... I only have ONE request: CHANGE THE GRAPHIC ON GRAVEMIND! It really bugs to be playing Halo [2], and all of a sudden... I'm watching "Little Shop of Horrors!" I swear... I was expecting that damn thing to start singing or dancing!!

Make it look like SOMETHING else!!!

As for the MP... I expect it will be as many suspect: based on Halo 4'a MP. If they [at least] brought back "clans" to the multiplayer, it would feel more like Halo 2's MP. I just hope they make ALL the maps ever created for Halo 2 available (even if we have to pay for them), and play JUST like the original MP! I don't care if it uses the Halo 4 MP engine... just let the classic maps play like the original!!

I don't really care if they bring back H2's multiplayer, but I really REALLY want to see this game made, I loved Halo 2(though I love CE more)and since playing Anniversary have hoped and prayed for this.Hooray!

As long as they keep the halo 2 original multiplayer and not reach, this will be a must buy for me.

All halo games on current gen system? Am I dreaming?

Game and engine are done so there's not much that needs done other than update graphics and use the new mp engine from 4 to do the multiplayer. Y'all know it'll be done that way so they can have it out by November next year. And this is in no way shape or form like CoD or other annual titles...4 took how long to be made? Regardless of 343 taking over? CoD has nothing but teams working on what to do next...halo has a fan base that will bitch all to high hell if something's fucked up with it. Don't see/hear any CoD idiots doing thatwhen the new one comes out. Lemmings, gotta love em

@85, 134 and many more:
I think this will have its own multiplayer because I think the next XBOX will launch for christmas 2013. If the remake comes out in 2014 it will be on the next xbox and though will not come with maps for a game on the last gen of consoles. Halo 2 Remake could infact be the title to fix your Halo needs on the Nextbox until the next major title comes out.

I'm a true halo fan so I'm definately getting this. I hope they add MP because I have never played on halo 2's original MP.

Also, I think this will be the last of the remakes for awhile because halo 3 and Reach are already on the 360 and are new enough.

One thing that CEA lacked that I felt should have been do-able was campaign scoring (complete with most of the medals). I wasn't exactly a big fan of the idea of keeping absolutely EVERY limitation from the original CE engine, but one thing that really would have increased the replay value for me would have been that nice addition. There's something just so mindlessly fun when trying to get "combo" multikill medals or seeing those headshot medals pop up.

If they do go ahead with a Halo 2 Anniversary and they keep things the same (which I wouldn't mind in comparison to the other release given it's updated just enough IMO) I'd hope this time around they include scoring.

This was the best Halo for Multiplayer but IMO Halo 1 was best Campaign.

And everyone hear is talking about the multiplayer part of Halo 2. Halo 1 might have gotten the short end of the stick in terms of its multiplayer remake, but I liked having the maps tack into Halo Reach. My complaint is how poorly the map packs are organized in game. If I want to play halo 1 maps, I have to play the halo 1 mode. If I want to play halo 1 mode, i have to play those maps.
Why not allow the mode to apply to all the maps? Put all of them in one big list? Then firefight can rotate more than one map in?
Also, they way they coded the pistol to make it similar to the halo 1 pistol was a rip off. In MP, they simply made it so that every shot counted as a head shot. Which unbalanced things greater than the original every thought of doing.
Now for me, I'm looking forward to campaign. In that respect, Halo 2 is awesome because you finally got a look at the full conflict. You found that the aliens had divisions in the ranks just like us.
I'm hoping Halo 4 will finally give the story the credit its due. Since 343 is a company composed of fans, I may just get that wish. Done right, and Halo can rival Star Wars.

Huh. Another remake? I'm guessing the next games they will remake are Halo 3 and Halo 4? I love Halo and will buy Halo 4 LE day 1, but this is kind of ridiculous.

^for the millionth time, why the hell would 343i remake a 360 game?! They're only doing this since it was a previous generation title. I highly doubt they'll make a Halo 3 remake at all.

Wow... I'm surprised that someone hasn't mentioned the obvious (and if nothing else... to shut-up the idiots saying they'll remake Halo 3).

This will have ALL of the Halo games (at least up to Halo 4 & and Halo 2: Anniversary) play natively on the Xbox 360. You know [for damn sure] that NONE of the original Xbox games will play on the next Xbox console - not unless you want 30 GB of HD storage to be used for backwards-compatibility software!!

It's a win-win for everyone who loves Halo AND wants to be able to play all the games on the same console... not to mention improved graphics, AND... the reason most of us are on here: ACHIEVEMENTS!

For those not interested in the remastered versions of Halo... why the hell are you even reading here? Go read a book or something!

Definitely be nice to play Halo 2 on 360 without all the graphical glitches I got playing the Xbox original disc on it [like frames from cut-scenes staying on screen in game-play as an annoying filter.]

So I read about 120 comments and some people seem happy and some people not so much. Personally I loved the campaign. After playing halo combat evolved for 3 years nothing could have been more exciting and it did everything I could of asked and more. I think it was a huge milestone and a near perfect sequel. I never played xbox live but I would still today play lan halo 2 over any halo currently. I loved just going into matches with my friends with no score for hours and hours. The way it improved without subtracting anything meant just as much as the game itself and I never thought they would HD it. If they do I would buy it. I bought CEA and found no disappointments, although i didnt play that live multiplayer either. And as far as the PC version goes Halo started on xbox, and I would never be able to play it on anything else, I'm sure alot of people feel the same. Console games are so much more playable then PC. especially if your PC is garbage like mine.

THANK YOU! I hated that crap they added to the soundtrack. Why did they feel the need to add fan-boy interpretations of Halo songs onto the soundtrack? It did NOT fit the game at all (I suppose if I used drugs, like LSD, the music might have worked)!

When I ripped my CD onto my computer... I excluded EVERY one of those band-tracks!!

Not sure if this has been said or speculated, too many posts to go thru all. I had 1st thought to myself, November 2014 release as a 10yr Ann. like they did Halo 1 but maybe just maybe we will be lucky and they will use this as a Next Gen launch title this November for the new Xbox?! that is what I am hoping for the most! reguardless though if its this year or next it will be a next gen graphics remake, not a 360 title!! so those who are not excited cant see why.. I mean to take an amazing game like this made with Next Gen HD graphics, I would gladly pay a $60 price on that!

That's not likely to happen. Games for the original Xbox continued to be made AFTER the Xbox 360 was released... for a while! I don't need the graphics in Halo 2 to kick-ass beyond what we have currently. What most people (who want the remake at all) want, is to have Halo 1 thru 4 on the 360, so they can be together... not play Halo 1 (CEA) on the 360, then play Halo 2A on the next gen Xbox, then go back to the 360 to Halo 3... that's just stupid. Besides... if it comes out for the 360 (assuming they don't have a separate, isolated "Classic" Halo 2 MP mode)... the game should only be 40 bucks - just like Halo CEA! If it comes out on the next-gen console... it would more likely cost 60 bucks - or possibly "70 bucks," if the history of game-price increases holds!!

@44 So they should have put LAN multiplayer in the game. Halo 1 didn't have Live so you couldn't play with other people just friends by connecting xbox together in the same house. Halo 2 was the best Halo to date
