Christian Svensson (Capcom US) issued a post today on the Capcom forums. It was in response to a fan asking “Why no Monster Hunter announcements at Comic-Con?”.
Svensson Responded with the following:
Ok, part one, I’m not aware of anyone from Capcom saying “wait for comic-con”. Perhaps fan speculation.
I will be more clear than I have ever been… Western MH fans should have some sort of information before the end of this calendar year. I can’t say more than that unfortuntaely though I would love to.
Now the post does not say they will announce a release by the end of the year, just that some information will come before the end of the year.
For some this might be the hope we need, for others.. This will just set the nerd rage in full gear.
