Might Marvel be making a numbered comeback?

Thanks to some more words from everyone’s favorite source for fighting games leaks DasVergeben, rumors are circulating once again that a big Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite update is on the way from Capcom — while DasVergeben talked about this back in August (with the possibility that said update might be announced at Evo 2018; it wasn’t) the new spin on this rumor is based around Peter “ComboFiend” Rosas working with Marvel games, and advocating for this update from that position. The update will also supposedly be rebranded to Marvel vs. Capcom 4, dropping the Infinite moniker.

But: they are just rumors at this time, with no official confirmation. Maximilian has talked about the possibility of an “Ultimate”-style upgrade for MvC:I before; in the video below, he offers his current thoughts on the present rumors — including why Capcom might have held back on MvC:I a while.
