There's a strong rumor in the wind that speaks of Halo: Combat Evolved making a return in HD form. Originally released in 2001, 343 Industries is said to be working on Halo HD, which would use the Halo: Reach engine, to commemorate the series' forthcoming 10 year anniversary.

Of course, soon after the rumor surfaced, Microsoft dispatched their vigilant spokespeople to shoot it down, and with it, the dreams of Halo fanboys across the globe. Speaking with Eurogamer, M$ says, “Right now our focus is on supporting Halo: Reach. We have nothing to announce at this time.” Of course you have nothing to announce at this time, Microsoft, but you did leave the door ajar by not denying it.

Do you feel that? It's the reinvigorated hope of the Halo fandom. Bask in it. Xbox LIVE, Slayer, Hang 'em High, ridiculously overpowered sniper magnums. Do want.
