Official Microsoft Response
We currently do not have plans to release any Halo titles on Steam, nor do we currently have plans to release a PC version of Halo 3.
In my opinion the use of 'we currently have no plans,' is sidestepping the question and not a flat out denial but leaving it open to interpretation.
No. There are no plans to do either at this time.

343i wanted a complete remake of the original game by November 11, the date of Combat Evolved's release, giving Saber just over a year to complete the project
Halo: CE Anniversary was released in November 2011, so that means the game was likely in production in July or August of 2010.
Halo: CE Anniversary was officially announced in June 2011.

Can you comment on the rumour about a remake of Halo: Combat Evolved?
Well like you just said, it's a rumour. And if you really really want to play Halo: Combat Evolved in 720p HD, go to Games on Demand. It's there right now for like $9.99!
