I would like to point out that Worlds Unite volume 3 was supposed to come out about a week ago, but it isn't available anywhere online. It's a shame, considering that Archie was on a roll (if you could call it that) with Worlds Unite volume 2, Sonic volume 4, and Boom volume 2. I really hope this doesn't mean the upcoming Sonic and Universe Sagas GNs are going to be delayed as well. And the other strange thing is that even the regular monthly comics have been delayed for a while now. If they can't deliver on the GN end, could they at least give us the monthly issues?

Do not take this as fact:

Oddly enough, Amazon UK is showing Mega Man Spirtius Ex Machina as being in stock. This is definitely an update, because before they had it listed as out of stock and only showed the insane prices from other sellers. It says it takes a month or two to dispatch, but it says it's dispatched directly from Amazon and on top of that, it's the regular cost of the book.

Does anyone here know the official status of the Sonic/Mega Man: Worlds Unite Volume 3 TPB? I know that Archie no longer has the Sonic comic license...

 

You more or less just answered your own question. With Archie no longer in posession of the Sonic lisence, and with no intention of releasing the remaining Mega Man graphic novels, whether they still have the lisence to that one or not, it's dead.

Yeah. And the odds of IDW reprinting it are...sketchy at best. Yes, IDW has a track record of reprinting comics from past licensors, but given the sheer amount of them in Worlds Unite, combined with the issues that they might have to get past to reprint old Archie issues in general, I don't think Worlds Unite will be reprinted again for a good long while, if ever.

The reason I even asked in the first place is that I haven't seen any OFFICIAL word on its status. I know that common sense would dictate that due to Archie losing(?) the license to the Sonic comics, at best, the future of Worlds Unite Vol. 3 as well as every other unreleased Sonic TPB to date is in jeopardy.
