According to reliable sources, Rockman Online has officially been canceled by Neowiz Games, although the news has yet to be made public by the Korean MMO giant.
First revealed at G*Star 2010, the last developer note for the game was posted on 14th March, just around 2 months ago. Rockman Online was originally proposed to move to another game studio for continued development, but the executives shot the idea down.
As part of restructuring efforts at Neowiz Games,300 employees will be retrenched while there will be many changes made to the management and executive teams as well.
There are rumors all is not well within the company, as they were accused of bribing executives of the Korea Baseball Organization over games contract. The relationship between Neowiz Games and Korea Baseball Organization is said to at an all time low.
That is not the end of the bad news. While Neowiz earned millions from publishing FIFA Online 2 in Korea, Nexon has apparently secured the publishing rights for FIFA Online 3 with Electronic Arts (EA).
Just a couple of days ago, the Western media outlets were reporting Nexon buying out EA, which I think is a really ridiculous rumor to even begin with.
