Halo 2 Anniversary HD Whatever you want to call it, pretty much confirmed for Xbox One
Last week we had a mountain on Xbox One leaks. We heard about Halo 5 being delayed until 2015 but to give Halo fans something to hold onto and love this holiday season - they’re  going to bring Halo 2 Anniversary Hyper Boogaloo Edition for the Xbox One. While we don’t get a flat out CONFIRMATON, this as close as we’re getting from Xbox’s own Phil Spencer. 

Halo 2 was THE shooter during the OG Xbox days. We know that SABER INTERACTIVE, the makers of the first Halo Anniversary that came to the Xbox 360 are working on the X1. It’s not a stretch to say, “Yeah, this is legit and it’s coming”. So how do you feel about a prettied up Halo 2 for Xbox One?
