But it's "not ready" for a full announcement.

Update: A new Mega Man game has not been confirmed, Capcom has clarified to Joystiq. The company is having “ongoing discussions about Mega Man,” but “won’t announce anything until something is ready.”

Original: Capcom is developing a new Mega Man game, it has confirmed during its “World of Capcom” panel at PAX East in Boston, according to Joystiq.

But the game is “not ready” for a full announcement yet, according to Capcom community manager Brett Elston. It’s coming, though.

This should come as welcome news to the Mega Man fanbase, who in the past two years withstood the cancellations of Mega Man Legends 3, Mega Man Universe, and more recently, Mega Man Online.

In other Mega Man-related news, Mega Man 4 and Mega Man 5 are coming to the 3DS eShop on April 25 and May 16, respectively. Capcom is also planning to release a special light-up figure in commemoration of the series’ 25th anniversary this year.

  • Skeletor

    LMAO!

    Capcom is even more evil than I!

    They cancel Mega Man games after full announcements.

    This one is dead before iteven had a chance at birth!

    Mwahaha. Well played you maniacal bastages. Well played indeed!

  • Paul Rodriguez

    I would be nice to see a new Mega Man game actually get released.

  • Sevyne

    It’ll be canceled in a few weeks, or it’ll be a game based off of bad cover art Mega Man that they put in SFxT.

  • DesmaX

    Please, “Megaman X” gameplay

  • adhesive

    Watch it be a browser game.

  • Adol Christian

    Most probably for 3DS or Vita (hope for both).

  • Freesun4

    I’m not so sure since we are close to April’s Fool

  • Ni

    Fuck…I…need…to control…the…hype…
    The hype here is getting strong, but i’ll calm down and just wait.

      • KnifeAndFork

        Hokuto! Hyakuretsu Ken!

      • PrinceHeir

        Omae wa mou Shindeiru!!

  • zweii

    Megaman/Rockman certainly hasn’t had good luck with its franchise in the most recent years, so I’m going to be cautiously optimistic here…

    Sorry to tell the bad news but the Capcom representative denied this news and there was no Megaman reveal at PAX:

      I knew it! When it comes to Megaman and Capcom……… I no longer get my hopes up unless that game has a release date.

  • Bloodios

    It was all a misunderstanding! I knew it was wise not to get my hopes up…

    • KnifeAndFork

      It was all a Dream
      I used to read Capcom Magazine….

  • uhawww

    Someone from Capcom has denied this, restating that they are discussing the series and its future, and will announce something when the time comes, but they have yet to formal begin development on any project.

  • Aldridge517

    I no longer have faith in Capcom in regards to the Mega Man series. They are not to be trusted.

  • http://www.samuraiprincess.com Mr Fwibbles

    iPhone game or cancelled, which will it be? Place bets now!

  • Kurisu Makise

    After reading the comments, yikes…Capcom has much more to work on…goodness =(

    Ugh. Damn it, Joystiq.

    And just like THAT, we’re back to step one, waiting.

  • Rafael Martines

    Megamen Maverick Hunter X HD ;) Do it Capcom

  • Solomon_Kano

    Ongoing discussions, eh? For whatever reason, that makes me think they’re gonna outsource it. I dunno why, but that’d be great regardless. I mean, as of Ducktales, they have a relationship with WayForward so…

    If they don’t give it WayForward though, ASW could work MAGIC with Mega Man. They already did it for Contra.

  • PrinceHeir

    lol capcom you bastards.

    at least Dungeons Dragons Chronicle of Mystara and remake of Duck Tales are here.

  • Elvick

    Not surprised.

  • alundra311

    Is it safe to say at least they are giving us that Duck Tales remaster?

  • Sevyne

    I’m not surprised in the least with the update on this article. Good old Capcom doing what they do best; Crushing dreams.

  • TimesTicking

    Why do they keep releasing Mega Man games? I prefer the X series more >.<

    • Paul Rodriguez

      Keep releasing Mega Man game? There has not been one in a while. They keep getting canned. The terrible mobile game does not count.

      Street Fighter X Mega Man does not count as well as it was not really a Mega Man game, and was a fan created game that Capcom helped (quite a bit if I recall) on.

  • http://profiles.google.com/dnlblue Daniel blue

    They could hire WayForward to help them make an HD 2D Megaman game.
    I remember playing Mighty Switch force and thinking to myself how the graphics reminded me of Megaman X. It would certainly look glorious.

  • Prodigy-X

    Capcom won’t do it. Their main focus is MH on Nintendo.

  • Thew4lker

    Let me guess: Megaman 11, 8-bit style?
