Full details are unknown, however CapCom said that “various circumstances” caused the cancellation. Up until this news we believed that the game was headed for a Spring 2011 release date and would be a downloadable title via Xbox Live / PSN.
Originally development started back in March 2010, gameplay videos showed that the developers were making progress with the release, therefore fans of Mega Man games will be understandably frustrated by this news.
We wouldn’t rule out the possibility of this game being released at a later date, however for now we can confirm that there are no plans to continue development in the near future.
This news was revealed on the official CapCom Japan website, you can check the announcement out for yourself here, but you will need to be fluent in Japanese to read the statement.
