Whether or not this is true needs to wait a little bit. According to the Mega Man boardgame developers on Kickstarter, it seems that CAPCOM has hired a new producer for Mega Man. Whether or not this is the case is still an open question as this isn’t from CAPCOM themselves, and even here the word used is apparently.
If there is a new producer, that could mean CAPCOM is gearing up for something. Something’s brewing up nevertheless with the cartoon, so only time will tell. As my friend said, it seems Mega Man is going down the Pac-Man road, and I wouldn’t mind that.
