Capcom and the Blue Bomber: Promises of… Something?

With talk of Mega Man’s 25th Anniversary on people’s minds, most talks on the subject turn to talk of more games. I’ve always been a fair weather fan of the series, myself, especially after getting rather disenfranchised with the Mega Man X series’ Playstation entries. I’ve seen Capcom do more throwbacks to old-school Mega Man and, honestly, I really liked this direction and I’ve grown towards looking forward to more entries in this direction. Thing is, though, these same people who would talk highly of Mega Man and the guy’s anniversary also talk of a very low likelihood of more games coming in the franchise.
In an interview with Nintendo Power (in issue 284 and here), USA Senior VP of Capcom, Chris Svensson addresses that talk by promising more games in the franchise without really promising anything specific, citing:

“…an issue we’ve had in the past has been talking about games and announcing them before we’re certain they’re going to come out, which unfortunately has lead to profound disappointment for many fans. So for now, I’m going to have to stay mum about any details.”

So, there you have it, folks, good old Capcom wants to assure you something is coming but can’t tell you when or if it’s coming because they fear it will disappoint the fans. I don’t know why they felt it necessary to make an announcement that it’s possible that they may or may not make an announcement about possibilities but that’s just me.
What do you guys think?
