I wonder if they are cancelling it to make a better title? Or to take the franchise in a new direction?
It seems odd that they'd just completely cancel something as profitable, so I'm sure there are other things in the works.
Perhaps the designers/producers/studio decided the game was becoming too much of a joke (meaning they were deviating from the idea of Megaman and turning it into something that wasn't "Megaman" enough) and wanted to switch gears?
It's an interesting thing, but I'm hoping they get some retro-feel back into the Megaman series, as of late it's been drifting, and I think that's why they're making cancellations and changes (maybe?). 0.0
Legends 1 and 2 were very well received, despite the fact that they didn't sell as well as other titles. Fans have been demanding for a new game for almost a decade now, and when this was announced, it seemed like Capcom was actually listening to it's fans and willing to let them be involved in the development process (with the rocket-building contest and all). To hear this get canceled is kind of disheartening, and many people felt like they've been betrayed.
Oh, and take a look at the first post of this thread:http://thelifestream.net/forums/showthread.php?t=7934
Apparently, Capcom didn't even like the concept of encorporating the player's (a.k.a. their CUSTOMERS) opinion throughout the development, and there is even a rumor that Capcom has been kicking out anyone who talks about Megaman at the Comic-con.
