343 Industries may have upped the visuals for Halo 2 with the Anniversary edition but it won’t be in 1080p resolution. This is due to the game running two different graphics and sound engines, allowing players to switch between the classic visuals or opting for the new updated graphics. As executive producer Dan Ayoub stated, this “put a hit on resolution”. It isn’t quite 720p but it isn’t 1080p either.

“So in the last weeks of development, our teams were able to meet a stretch goal and the campaign of Halo 2 Anniversary now runs 60 fps at a crisp resolution of 1328×1080, which is a significant and meaningful boost in image quality we think fans are really going to appreciate.”

In case one is worried though, the remaining aspects of Halo: The Master Chief Collection is in 1080p and 60 FPS. Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 3 and Halo 4 will all run at this standard but Halo 2 Anniversary will be the one exception.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection releases on November 11th for North America and November 14th for Europe.

      Yeah probably 99% of the people buying MCC won t care. But I do feel as though 343 wanted to be able to tell the media “Halo 2 runs natively 2 million pixels”. It’s like all these studios are now having to really consider this magical number when making their games. Insomniac knows it, Activision knows it, UbiSoft knows it. Boom. But I’m happy Insomniac made that choice…….I want great gameplay man. And alot on screen.

      If my Xbox doesn’t render 1080p on said game, do u think I care, if it’s an amazing game? Nope. I want to be immersed like back in 2006-2007……….Gears, Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, COD 4.

    To me the Halo 2 remake is gorgeous, and the footage they have shown already, wasn’t 2M pixels. So there u go. 343’s focus is in the right place imo. One complaint I have is why don’t they give us the option to turn off the old engine swapping option? I don’t care about those old ugly graphics man! I’d luv the option to turn it off. No big deal, but hopefully they’ll add that later on after the Halo 5 beta.
