Rumor: Halo 2 Anniversary in the works

With Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary out of the way and Halo 4 just around the corner, what's next for Microsoft's Halo-dedicated studio? One rumor suggests 343 Industries will be moving on to updating another classic, Halo 2.

The rumor comes from Official Xbox Magazine (via CVG). The magazine calls it "Halo 2 Anniversary," which raises questions about when it will be targeting a release. The game's 10-year anniversary wouldn't be until 2014, giving gamers well over a year to enjoy Halo 4 and its post-release episodic missions.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Shacknews "our focus right now is on developing Halo 4. Beyond that, we do not comment on rumors or speculation."
