Mega Man Online officially axed by Capcom, Neowiz responds

Mega Man Online was been officially kerb-stomped by Capcom in November, but the move was only just made public by a spokesperson from developer Neowiz.

The statement suggests Neowiz and Capcom weren’t seeing eye to eye, before mutually bolt-gunning the project.
