While dedicated Mega Man fans are no doubt ticking their calendars daily as they wait for the blue guy's 25th anniversary, Capcom Unity's Christian Svensson has advised fans not to get too excited.
Svensson - Capcom Unity's Corporate Officer and Senior Vice-President - has followed up inquiries about the nature of Mega Man's 25th anniversary celebrations with the following statement on the company's messageboard.
"In December 'some but not all' plans for the coming year of celebrations will be shared. There are many moving parts and not everything will be done and final come December. No one has promised a game or even an announcement of one at that time. Please do keep expectations in check."
So there you go: don't get your hopes up.
