Halo 2 Anniversary Xbox One boxart is "based solely on speculation", says Microsoft
"Your Halo journey on Xbox One begins in 2014", though.

An Xtralife listing for an Xbox One-bound Anniversary edition of Halo 2 is "based solely on speculation and rumour", Microsoft has told OXM. This isn't quite the same thing as denying that the game is in development, of course.
The listing includes a release date - 11th November 2014 - and a suspicious-looking Xbox One boxart, marked "provisional". It follows (and may indeed be inspired by) a report that Halo 2 Anniversary is in the works at 343 Industries, Saber Interactive and Certain Affinity.
Microsoft Studios corporate vice-president Phil Spencer wasn't able to comment on the latter story, when a fan pressed for insights yesterday. He neglected to deny it outright, however.
