New Sonic Game Coming in 2017

After confirming a new entry in the Sonic the Hedgehog series was in development earlier this week, Sega has now revealed a new title will be out in 2017.

Sonic Team executive Takashi Iizuka confirmed the news during a Sonic 25th anniversary event in Tokyo, according to Gematsu.


As rumored, more information about the game will be shared as part of Sonic’s big party at San Diego Comic-Con in July. This event, which will also include a live performances by the bands Crush 40 and Hyper Potions, will thankfully be livestreamed for all to watch.

“We at Sonic Team are developing a completely new game,” Iizuka said earlier this week. “The most important thing is not the fact that the series survived for 25 years, but how many games [were] developed. Our goal [is to] add something new and overcome any potential hardships.”

The next Sonic game is Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, which will arrive for Nintendo 3DS on September 27. The game was previously expected to come out in 2015 before it was delayed. For more on Fire & Ice, check out GameSpot’s preview from E3 2016.
