In March, Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka confirmed the development of the next entry in theSonic the Hedgehog series was underway.
Lizuka recently caught up with Game Informer at E3 2019, and even though when asked, he didn’t reveal any details about the next title.
The next games release is seemingly tied to the upcoming anniversary preparations. 2017 was the last “big year” for Sonic with the release of Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces and 2021 will be the next one according to the head of Sonic Team:
“The next big year for Sonic is 2021. That’s the 30-year anniversary for Sonic. We are now preparing.”
Since it’s the anniversary game, don’t be shocked to see another game that is similar to Sonic Generations.
