Maverick Hunter is the codename of a cancelled first-person shooter based on the Mega Man X. It would have been a reboot to the series.


Maverick Hunter Mega Buster

The redesigned Mega Buster.

Maverick Hunter was cancelled in 2010 but was kept secret until April 9th 2013. It was going to be a darker Mega Man X game themed around a new X designed by Adi Granov. It was confirmed to be a re-imagining of Mega Man X, where the main character is X, but has a human police officer as a sidekick. It was also confirmed that a trilogy was planned, and by the third game in its series, Zero would be playable and forced to destroy X who had grown incredibly powerful and infinitely intelligent over the course of two games.



  • The concept of X becoming too powerful and ultimately becoming the main antagonist, forcing Zero to stop him, is an allusion to how X was originally going to be the main antagonist of the Mega Man Zero series before being replaced by Copy X shortly before the first game was released.
