Why 'Infinite' and not '4'?

What's the reason of the change of title?

Do you think it's because it breaks the progression of the series by bringing back 2-characters teams?

Can it be considered a spinoff/detour?

Is it because of the new "DLC/constant updates" model?

Is there going to be a "MvC4" eventually?

    Probably because Capcom wants to reboot it already.

    How a "reboot"? It's not like these games have a story or continuity...

    After the E3 I wish the pulled out this 'MvC: Infinity' as a joke and then they'll release a true Marvel vs Capcom 4 for us to forget forever this garbage.

    I honestly would have preferred plain old "Marvel Super Heroes 2: Infinity", and just had all Marvel characters, then Marvel/Disney wouldn't have had any conflict with the Capcom side of things and the team could have just worked to their standards without complications.

    The majority of the Capcom roster do absolutely nothing for me at all, it's like they chose the most generic, boring and unrelevant characters possible, Ryu, Chunli, Morrigan, Spencer, Arthur, Dante, they didn't even honour their reboots. The only Capcom characters that interest me are X and Sigma, probably because that's all we've wanted for the past five years. Why infinite? Probably because it's a MSH game with Capcom characters in it, not a proper MvC game.

    The more rofls you put in to it doesn't make it any more funny or threatening you know? I was highlighting Capcom's ghastly mistakes how they can't even stick to their own decisions you dumb ass. I'm getting the idea you piss the bed because you seem a bit premature, should probably get that looked at.

    I find it incredibly stupid how peIople think an entry isn't mainline because it doesn't have a number.

    That usually means it isn't. It's an educated assumption.

    No it's not. I can understand if people don't think something isn't mainline if it's dramatically different from the other games in the same series or if they got a different studio to develop it. Having a number or subtitle on the game's title is not significant enough to warrant distinction. Sometimes a series will drop the number in favor of subtitles. There will be other series that will bringing in numbering when it never had it before. That's not going to tricky stuff like flip flopping between the two and developing a sub-series within the mainline.

    Disney wants to reboot the Marvel part in the VS game, imho the goal being that ultimately the "Marvel" roster fits the settings of "Infinite Comics" digital publications by Marvel.
    Let's just hope later iterations of Marvel vs Capcom stay as far as possible form the concept of the past Disney infinity games .

    “And what we talked about earlier with games-as-a-service, we certainly expect Marvel vs. Capcom to be that,” states Ong. “There’s going to be content released over time. We’re not seeing this as a one-off that ships this fall; it’s a service that goes on for years. Therefore, if you look at it, content and new characters are going to be dropped over time, and I think fans will be happy with what’s going to be dropped, not just in September but going on from there.”

    Now I know why they're calling it "infinite"... you'll keep on paying DLCs from here to infinity!!

    Infinity Wars films coming out soon. Marvel wanted the MvC series to reflect the MCU. And emphasis on the infinity gems mechanics.

    And to separate the reboot from identity of current series.

    On a side note, Marvel and Capcom are revisiting the roots of the Vs series telling the story of how the two universes came together, so hypothetically this is a sequel to Marvel Super Heroes and a prequel to X-Men Vs Street Fighter. Not that there is a canon, nor is this KoF, but you could argue that this game isn't a "dream match" like MvC2 perhaps is.

    Edit: Lol thinking on that I guess it is a dream match as some of the characters are dead lol.
