Halo 2 to be rebooted?

Halo 2 fans rejoice! Following the success of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, a new rumour originating from magazine OXM UK hints that Microsoft and 343 Industries will be releasing a remake of Halo 2 in a similar fashion. The Anniversary edition of Halo: Combat Evolved featured greatly enhanced graphics that utilized the more powerful Xbox 360, and it is expected the new edition of Halo 2 would also.

Halo 2 was hugely successful as an original Xbox release, so it seems that it would be a prime candidate for a re-release in HD. This seems to be a trend in the gaming industry currently, with many developers re-releasing past games with HD graphics and additional content.

One has to wonder whether companies are doing this for the fans, or if it is merely a tactic to increase revenue while saving the time developing a new franchise or original title. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
