project sonic 2017

At SXSW this past weekend, Sonic Team revealed some details on an upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog game that’s currently in the works.

Sonic Team’s panel at SXSW mostly revolved around the upcoming kart racer, Team Sonic Racing, however, to wrap up the panel studio boss Takashi Iizuka revealed that the team has “begun production” on a new Sonic title.

Iizuka-san didn’t have too much to say about the title other than that Sonic Team “will be excited to share more news with you in the future, but for now, thank you for your patience until we have something to show.”

It’s incredibly likely we won’t be seeing this title this year, but we’re excited to see what they have up their sleeves. The last main entries into the Sonic The Hedgehog franchise were Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, with Sonic Mania focusing on remixing classic Sonic games. Sonic Forces we try not to talk about.

Team Sonic Racing, the next actual title, is due for release on PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One on May 21.
