343 Industries: We are Not Working on Halo 2 HD at this Time
343 Industries confirm that they're not working on Halo 2's HD remake, but does that mean no one else is?
Remember when we posted that rumor last week that 343 Industries was working on an HD remake of Halo 2? Well, the studio has since shot that rumor down...partially, at least.
In a recent Q&A session with Microsoft's ExpertZone program (via The Halo Council), the studio was asked if there was a chance we'll see Halo 2 HD before the end of this console generation, and the studio answered, "we are not working on that at this time. We are kind of busy."
Of course, it's worth mentioning that Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary was not developed solely by 343, but by three studios. 343 and Saber Interactive worked on the campaign, while Certain Affinity worked on the remake's multiplayer.
So, there's a chance that 343 is indeed telling the truth that they're not developing it, but that doesn't mean Saber or Certain Affinity isn't working on it as we speak, no?
Would you wand a Halo 2 HD remake or should Microsoft focus its creative juices in creating new IPs?
