Expectations were somewhat high for the recent Sonic Central stream, especially given that it’s celebrating Sonic the Hedgehog’s 30th anniversary. Sonic Colors Ultimate, a remaster of the 2010 Wii and DS platformer, was announced but what about the next big Sonic game? A new teaser was revealed and sadly, doesn’t offer much information.
The trailer (via IGN) sees Sonic running through a forest and eventually lighting up with some strange pixel effects and dashing away. Again, not a whole lot go off of but this new title will be releasing in 2022. Furthermore, this will be the next big flagship title from Sonic Team.
This new Sonic the Hedgehog title is in development for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC. At the very least, Sega isn’t abandoned previous-gen consoles with its upcoming releases. Stay tuned for more details and hopefully some gameplay in the coming months. In the meantime, Sonic Colors Ultimate is out on September 7th.
