The game was announced in 2010, but now it transpires that Capcom and developer Neowiz mutually agreed to halt development on Mega Man Online in November 2012.

Speaking to Korean website This Is Game (translated via Kotaku), a Neowiz spokesman explained the situation. "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."

The game was to be set in the distant future, long after the Mega Man and Mega Man X timelines, with copies of the series' heroes being put into mass-production to combat an invasion of robotic baddies.

Capcom cancelled both Mega Man Legends 3 and Mega Man Universe in 2011, but promised at the end of 2012 that the character had plenty of life left.

"I can say with certainty that you've not seen the last of the Blue Bomber on consoles and handhelds, and, with luck, we'll be celebrating his 50th anniversary, including all of the games you're going to enjoy over the next 25 years," said Capcom senior vice president Christian Svensson at the time.
