While I posted about this news back in May last year, the confidential information was from 1 of my ninjas. A few hours ago, Korean developer and publisher, Neowiz Games, officially confirmed with many Korean media outlets that Rockman Online is indeed dead.
First announced in 2010, followed by a bombastic G*Star the same year, Rockman Online fell into an uneasy zone of silence since the event ended. Neowiz had its own internal struggles, including retrenchment, dropping sales etc. The agreement for Rockman Online’s cancellation was apparently finalized this past November with Capcom.
Neowiz has now turned its attention to a smaller number of internal-developed titles, while making sure they are of the highest quality, such as Bless. Perhaps the Rockman franchise has too much of a casual feel around it, especially with the game demo shown being too faithful to its console roots.
