Sonic Frontiers is an open world 3D platformer developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega.
It is the first game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series to feature an open world setting.
Sonic Frontiers will feature full voice and subtitle support for English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish, along with subtitle support for several other languages.
Sega also expects the open world game to exceed the first-year sales of the series' last mainline instalment, Sonic Forces.
Sega confirms that the likes of Roger Craig Smith, Cindy Robinson, and Colleen O’Shaughnessey will all be returning for the 2022 open world platformer.
Ian Flynn, whose currently the head writer for IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog comic series, is also confirmed to be penning the story.
Sonic will venture through the Starfall Islands to battle new foes on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch.
It's been confirmed that the next mainline Sonic game – due out sometime in 2022 – will be unveiled in full at The Game Awards 2021.
After the web domain for Sonic Frontiers was discovered, a series of cheeky Twitter exchanges tease the hedgehog being at the show in some form.
Though it's currently not live (and only returning a "403 Forbidden" message), an announcement could be right around the corner.
This could be the final name for Sonic Rangers, the rumored open world title releasing in 2022 for previous and current gen platforms.
But Sega wanted to " take the occasion of the 30th anniversary to announce that a brand new title was in development."
Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka is hoping that 2022's new Sonic game will help define the future of the series the way Sonic Adventure did.
A number of details may have emerged on the recently unveiled game, while Sega themselves also seem to have inadvertently revealed the game's name.
The next flagship title from Sonic Team doesn't have an official name yet. But it's coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Smith stepped down in January, but announced that he would be returning after a coordinated fan campaign to bring him back.
Sega will hold a live stream celebrating Sonic's 30th Anniversary on Thursday, May 27th offering a look at upcoming "projects, partnerships, and events."
