Sonic-Future-GamesLast week it was revealed by the Sonic Team that they were working on a new Sonic game. However if you were hoping to get your hands on the game anytime soon, you might be disappointed as during the franchise’s 25th Anniversary celebration in Tokyo, the team’s boss Takashi Iizuka confirmed that it will only be released in 2017.

In an interview with MCV, SEGA’s Chief Brand Officer Ivo Gerscovich was quoted as saying, “We are really focussed on turning Sonic into an entertainment icon, not just a games icon. We want to go across all platforms and elevate his status even further, which explains why we are doing so much. SEGA is really – as of this last year – putting a huge emphasis on quality.”

Unfortunately in terms of specifics of the game, like what it could look like, gameplay, and features, not much is known. However SEGA is expected to reveal more specifics come 22nd of July where they will be hosting Sonic the Hedgehog’s 25th Anniversary Party in San Diego, so do check back with us then to see what SEGA might have in store for gamers.

In the meantime last we heard, SEGA was also working with Sony Pictures to create a Sonic feature film that is expected to combine both live-action and traditional CGI, kind of like what we saw with the Warcraft movie.
