Even though Sonic the Hedgehog has seen its fair share of ups and downs throughout its long history (to say the very least), there’s little doubt in anyone’s mind that it remains one of the biggest properties in video games, and perhaps even entertainment media as a whole. Recently, Sega announced that the franchise has hit a major new milestone.

In its recently-published annual report, the company revealed that across all of its game releases, including mainline titles, spinoffs, mobile releases, and more, the Sonic franchise has surpassed 1.5 billion units in worldwide sales and downloads.

It’s worth noting that this also includes downloads of free-to-play titles on mobile platforms. The mobile market in particular is one where Sonic has seen massive success with a number of free-to-play titles. Either way, it’s a hugely impressive figure nonetheless, and just goes to show how big Sonic is.

The series’ next mainline title, Sonic Frontiersis out on November 8 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
