This will NEVER come out in the US. Capcom knows that they won't make money here (or the EU probably) if there is a subscription fee. That is why MH3 doesn't have one in the US or EU but it does have one in Japan.
That being said I don't think Capcom would release Frontier without a subscription fee, due to the fact it is MMO like in the constant updates and what not.
Oh and I must say if you think "well the hardcore gamers will catch on," let me tell you, I love MH, had it since the PS2, it is my favorite Multiplayer series, but I will never pay a subscription fee (5$ a month maybe but that's it); and I know that there are many people that are the same as me. Also, much of MH3 sales are from people who never played MH before and wouldn't have bought it if there was a fee.
I don't agree MHF will never come out to NA because people would never pay a subscription fee. First of all it's an MMORPG is a subscription fee isn't abnormal. Second, nearly 24 million Xbox 360's have been sold in the America's with the vast majority of those sold in North America. If only 1% of Xbox 360 owners in NA decided to purchase this game and pay the monthly fees that would still be at least 200,000 gamers. How many subscribers does the average MMORPG need to be profitable? Plus, this one would be a port and all they would have to do is make it in English.
