A recent update and an attached image spotted by NeoGAF members asks followers to recall E3 2003, when the first Halo 2 demo was shown, and E3 2004, when the first multiplayer demo featured 12 people playing the Zanzibar map.
An Xbox One remake of Halo 2 is in development and set for release in November 2014, to coincide with the tenth birthday of Bungie's original Xbox game, sources with an insight into Microsoft's software plans told CVG in January.
The title first came to light via a whistle blowing NeoGAF post, which CVG sources were able to partially verify.
An anonymous poster on the popular forum went on to claim that the Anniversary sequel will include access to a future Halo beta test and a new live-action show, similar to 2012's Forward Unto Dawn, although CVG was unable to verify these specific claims.This information appeared to rule out Halo 5 arriving before 2015. This was confirmed last month, when Microsoft named and dated Halo 5 Guardians for release on Xbox One in autumn 2015.
Shortly after, Engadget reported that the long-rumoured Halo 2 revival for Xbox One will come as part of a compilation also featuring Halo 1, 3 and 4. Halo: The Master Chief Collection is said to be the title of the package, which is expected to tell the full story of Spartan 117 ahead of his next outing.
Titled 'Game On', Microsoft's E3 2014 media briefing will begin on June 9 at 9:30am PT / 12:30am ET / 5:30pm BST.
