    FF hasn't been the huge mega block buster seller in a while but most writers have been able to make sales consistent enough to not get canceled or have enough leeway to wrap up their storylines. I think Fantastic Four took a bit of a hit with Fraction having a stunningly average run, which is strange because his FF with Aldred was absolutely amazing.

    So a title can only coast on being a Legacy Title for so long. Eventually there will be another Fantastic Four book and many of them will find places in the MU to still exist. There's already been a Runaways book announced that'll feature Valeria Richards.

I think the general consensus is that it has less to do with sales than with Marvel's conflicts with Fox--that they don't want to continue to support films from a company that won't work with them or give them as much profit as Sony has. It's the same reason Wolverine died, and that the Inhumans are now being pushed a lot harder than mutants. Some of that may be conspiracy theory, but were the Marvel (Disney)/Fox relationship not what it is, the cancellation of Fantastic Four would almost certainly not be happening.
