Previous speculations of Halo 2, the 2004 first-person-shooter making a comeback in HD have been struck down. When asked developers 343 Industries were quick to mow down the speculation saying: “We are kind of busy.”
This news will obviously come as a downer for the Halo fans who were terribly excited over the possibility of playing Halo 2 remastered in HD. The news came through a posting of Microsoft’s ExpertZone Q&A session with 343 Industries on HaloCouncil. On a suggestion that the company would follow up November’s Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary with an HD remake of Halo 2, the developer wrote:
We are not working on that at this time. We are kind of busy.
Currently 343 Industries is working on Halo 4 and are nearing completion. The game is a direct sequel to the previous Halo 3 and once again hands players the controls to Master Chief. The new Halo will also add a new Spartan Ops mode and an updated Forge toolset.
The game is expected to come out on Novemeber 6th, 2012.
