If you didn’t get enough of classic Master Chief after last year’s release of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, then you might be in luck. Rumor has it that the new stylists behind the Halo franchise, 343 Industries, are planning to give Halo 2 a fabulous HD makeover as well.
The rumor comes from the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine UK and states that, “Following the success of remake Halo Anniversary, 343 Industries has now started development of Halo 2 Anniversary.” The quote is found under the magazine’s rumor section and has no source attributed; no other details are given. Kotaku asked Microsoft about the rumor and got back the usual:
“Our focus right now is on developing Halo 4. Beyond that, we do not comment on rumors or speculation.”
The real question is, will Master Chief finally ditch that grimy old helmet and get some highlights this time around? Or maybe he’ll finally get his nails done since the game takes place on Earth? Whatever the case, unless he looks like a character out of Queer as Folk, then you can count me out. If CNN’s Anderson Cooper has the courage to finally come out of the closet, then the Chief should have no problem doing the same in this new remake; canon be damned!
