This week, Capcom brought word that development had ceased for the greatly anticipated Mega Man Legends 3. Fans were a little upset to hear this.

Not finding Capcom's official website to be a satisfactory outlet for their frustrations, many directed their outrage at Mega Man Legends 3's Wikipedia page, offering a colorful variety of theories as to why Capcom would do such a thing. Though the page is currently locked, more than one hundred edits were made on July 19th, the day after the cancellation's announcement. I've collected a handful of them here.

Some were more plausible than others.

This one was flagged as "potential vandalism."

Some speculated that Mega Man had died. Releasing a new game so soon afterward would be pretty disrespectful, after all.

Still others were more straightforward in their criticism.

And then there's the occasional sick burn.

Fans tried to cover every possible scenario, even one in which Capcom had been infiltrated by game-cancelling apes.

While the Infinite Crisis-era DC Universe was unlikely to have played a role in Capcom's decision, it's a possibility that still needed addressing.

One fan discovered the true reason behind the cancellation, but was quickly silenced by Wikipedia's overzealous moderators.


And yet for some, hope springs eternal.
