A Little History Behind Rockman Online
“The other party [Neowiz] requested to make an online game with Rockman (Mega Man internationally), we examined the project proposal and arrived at the conclusion it would be interesting to make.” [Siliconera]
Capcom, seeing Rockman Online as a viable project, gave it the green light. Tsujimoto also touched on the game's release schedule, stating it will hit the Korean market first, and then possibly branch off into Taiwan and China, two countries where PC MMOs are all the rage. A Japanese release is also being considered, but still no word on the rest of the world.
As noted on Siliconera, NeoWiz does have a North American based subsidiary, so that should certainly help the game's chances of being released here.
