'Halo 2: Anniversary' is an HD remastered version of Halo 2, which came out on the original Xbox in 2004, the Verge reported.
It will include a major overhaul to the game's visuals in addition to the soundtrack and sound effects. The game will also allow the users to switch back and forth from the original graphics to the updated visuals in the campaign mode.
