UPDATE: Well this is awkward. Brett just said over the Duck Tales stream he "doesn't know how news got out that a new Mega Man game is on the way, and that it is NOT what he said."
Further, Joystiq amended their original report with the following statement:
"Capcom has clarified Elston's comments, saying that a new Mega Man game has not been confirmed. The company is having "ongoing discussions about Mega Man," but it "won't announce anything until something is ready."
Original Story: According to Joystiq, Capcom Community Manager Brett Elston dropped a bomb at the World of Capcom panel at PAX East: a new Mega Man game is currently in development. Elston was unable to provide any further details, saying Capcom are not ready to officially announce the game just yet.
In other PAX-related Mega Man news, Capcom will be releasing a commemorative 25th anniversary statue. Mega Man 4 and Mega Man 5 were confirmed to hit the Nintendo 3DS eShop within the next two months on April 25 and May 16, respectively.
