Halo 2: Source is going to be a fully-custom remake of Halo 2 using the Source engine. We want to bring Halo 2 to PC since Bungie never did. You can check out our site here-
Currently we have 6-7 team members and looking for many more experienced members to join. If you are interested in join you may fill out a application here. (Please Read the Rules)
Although we have just recently started, here are a few pictures.......

Looking good so far! I can see a lot of work has gone into this so far; I especially like the weapon model at the bottom. But I have a sinking feeling that the second Bungie and/or their publishers catch a glimpse of this they are going to start waving around their legal baton. It has happened before -- anybody remember the Stargate mod for Farcry being shutdown? Mods such as this are in violation of intellectual property laws and, contrary to popular belief, the owners of said intellectual property regularly enforce their rights. Indeed, they are legally obligated to do so whenever they encounter a breach of the laws, otherwise they will have difficulty prosecuting anybody for intellectual property theft in the future. I'm not saying it isn't a good mod. It looks good so far. Just... be careful. Also, designing a website specifically for a minority browser isn't in your best interests. You should make sure that it works in all popular browsers, whether you like them or not. Stick a 'Get Firefox' banner somewhere instead.
Thank you for the positive feedback, and yes, we wouldn't do this without Bungies permission. One of our Project Leaders send them a PM'd a moderator at bungie.net and got this back.
Quoted from Shiska: "You don't need permission to make a mod, provided you're not charging for it. It would be appreciated though if you made sure to specify that Halo and Halo-related content is all copyright to Bungie and Microsoft, though."
This is looking really great so far. :D Good luck with the rest of it, you guys.
heh, looking good so far. This will be interesting! :) I liked the first Halo a lot, and was wondering will there ever be a Halo 2 for pc :/ I assume this will be a multiplayer mod then, right??

Yea, CoLeader randreach here, a lot of those things posted up there have been ditched, for even better things.
Just thought I'd let ya know.
Someone on your forum said that if your steam account is VAC banned you can't play online, well i cudn't be bothered to sign up to correct him so you can tell him for me
If your account is VAC Banned you can still play online, just not on VAC Secured servers :)
Looking really great! Shame i can't really play any HL2 Mods due the fact my machine can barely play them, lol. But keep up the great work :)
