Bah. And there we were getting our hopes up. Contrary to rumours of a Halo 2: Anniversary being in the pipeline at 343 Industries, it appears that the Halo studio is not actually working on an HD revamp "at this time" after all. The denial comes straight from the horse's mouth too.
Various sites such as The Halo Council noted that 343 Industries addressed the possibility of Halo 2: Anniversary in a recent Q&A posted on Microsoft ExpertZone, which is apparently a registration-only site MS uses for training its retail partners. When asked about the possibility of seeing a Halo 2 HD remake in the near future, 343 responded frankly: "We are not working on that at this time. We are kind of busy."
An Xbox PR rep also told CVG that they couldn't confirm whether this supposed Microsoft ExpertZone Q&A was actually legitimate or not, but added: "Our focus right now is on developing Halo 4. Beyond that, we do not comment on rumours or speculation."
Looks like we'll be waiting until after Halo 4 before we see Halo 2: Anniversary then...
