Halo 2: Anniversary Edition Could Be a Reality

Last Updated: June 7, 2014


Last E3, Microsoft promised that the Xbox One Halo experience would begin in 2014. Most fans took this to mean Halo 5 would be releasing this year, but we now know that’s not the case. Other than Halo 5, the most popular guess fans have had for the 2014 Halo Xbox One game is a remake, or anniversary edition, of Halo 2.

Microsoft has been pretty quiet on the subject, but when Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb announced that new drivers will allow you to use your Xbox One controller with your PC, he included a picture of an Xbox One controller being used with a tablet…which was running Halo 2.

Now, this isn’t a definitive sign of Halo 2 Anniversary, but Major Nelson has to know the excitement surrounding that possibility. Why did he choose that game to show in the picture? Well, whatever Microsoft has planned for Halo, we’ll probably find out in just a couple of days at E3.

We also hope to learn more about Halo 5: Guardians. We still don’t know a lot about it, although we’ve been told it will feature strong female characters, despite the Spartan in the logo not being a woman.

You know, if Halo 2 Anniversary is released in 2014 and Halo 5 is released in 2015, that will match up perfectly with the statement Steve Downes officially never made. We’ll know soon enough.
