We may be in for another revisit of a classic first-person shooter with the anniversary edition of Halo 2. According to the latest issue of OXM UK, 343 Industries has covertly begun development of the high-definition remake of the Xbox classic, while they finish polishing the upcoming Halo 4. Until Microsoft or 343 themselves comment on the possibility, there’s really not much more we can say, but given how generally well-received last fall’s Halo CE: Anniversary was, the decision to remake the second entry in Master Chief’s campaign wouldn’t be a surprising one.
I’m not sure whether I wholly support the growing trend of HD remakes. Some collections are definitely worth it, but others seem to be blatant money grabs. Given how over-saturated the FPS market already is right now, I can’t say I’m all that excited to see another one enter the fray, even if it is an HD remake of an entry in the series that pretty much began the current trend of first-person shooters. Nevertheless, I know that many would be excited to see this happen, so for their sake, I hope the rumour turns out to be true.
