The latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine UK claims in its rumors section that 343 Industries, the studio that's taken over the Halo reigns from Bungie, is working on an HD remake of Halo 2.

"Following the success of remake Halo Anniversary, 343 Industries has now started development of Halo 2 Anniversary," the magazine claims, giving no other details or information. Microsoft, predictably, declined to comment.

Assuming the remake in question is a full-scale do-over like Halo Anniversary, which featured fully re-worked visuals (and even a few new secrets), are you down to celebrate Halo 2's anniversary with some BXR and dual bullet hose spamming?

Now that we think about it, that won't be until 2014, so you might have some time to ponder that question. Either way, tell us your thoughts in the comments or on Twitter.
