Last fall, Kotaku reported that Rockman Online (aka Mega Man Online) seemed like it was dead. Today, we learned that the PC game has, indeed, been canned.
The game's official blog hadn't been updated since March 2012, leaving many to wonder about the game's status. Then, last September, the game's lead artist, Kang Dong Hwa, seemed to indicate on his blog that the project had been cancelled. He did not, however, mention Rockman Online by name.
It's now been revealed that both Capcom and NeoWiz Games mutually decided to end Rockman Online's development. According to Kotaku reader Sang Kwon, a NeoWiz spokesperson said to Korean site This Is Game, "Both companies have continually discussed to find agreeable points on quality, development time, communication and etc. Ultimately, both companies have agreed to stop the development of Rock Man Online last early November."
Rockman Online was announced in summer 2010.
