With Mega Man Legends 3 canceled and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 lacking the blue bomber, it's been assumed by most that the franchise is officially dead. Capcom, however, has attempted to give hope to the masses, assuring fans that the series is still important and not finished yet.

"The frustrating thing for me is I have nothing I can hold up and say, 'Oh, here’s this other Mega Man thing.' Absolutely, we have other things ... Mega Man is a very important brand to Capcom," said Capcom’s Christian Svensson. "We get questions [like] 'Are you guys trying to kill the brand?' No, absolutely not. It will continue to be a very important brand for us. I wish I had something I could hold and display for you that that’s the case, but I don’t right now. But super, super important to us; I do want to express that.”

Svensson addressed the cancelation of Legends 3, saying that it was a hard, but necessary, decision: "Certainly, we knew there would be a lot of upset people and in spite of that, we still had to make that decision. That doesn’t mean we don’t care about you at all. I unfortunately can’t get into the details of it, but it was not a decision that was made lightly and I can tell you that no one is happy about that decision, but it was a decision that had to be made."

This likely won't appease those fans who believe Capcom canceled the game because it "hates the fans," but there ya go!
