Halo Remake Rumors as Hot as a Plasma Grenade

For a while now, there has been speculation that Microsoft's 343 Industries was working on putting out an HD remake of the now classic Xbox game that kicked off the Halo phenomenon- Halo: Combat Evolved.

This is not the new 'HD' Halo... Obviously.
Now there's a little more to it that speculation- joystiq has apparently been in contact with somebody on the inside who has confirmed that a full remake (not just a Halo in HD kind of thing) is actually quite far along in development by Saber Interactive. 'Far along in development?' you say. 'How far along?' - coming this Fall. How's that for far along?

As for new features, supposedly the new re-do will have new artwork to put it in line with later releases in the series, will be in HD, will have 3DTV compatibility, and will have more current Halo control configurations. It will also feature online multiplayer and co-op. What it will not feature is the same engine that ran last year's Halo Reach.

As far as official announcements go, there's nothing yet- but between this and the second mystery Halo title being developed you should expect a Halo showing of some kind at e3 this year.
