Next Sonic game has “begun production”, but it probably won’t be out this year

The last two Sonic the Hedgehog games – the well-received Sonic Mania and the less-so Sonic Forces – came out in 2017, so we’re well overdue for the announcement of the next Sonic game. Well, at the SXSW Sonic panel this weekend, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka confirmed that the studio has “begun production” on the next major Sonic the Hedgehog game – but it may be a while before they’re ready to reveal it, so we probably won’t be seeing it in 2019.

The panel was mostly about the upcoming Sonic kart racing game Team Sonic Racing, which is due out this May, but to close the panel Iizuka wanted to share some information with the fans about the status of the next mainline Sonic game.

Unfortunately, he didn’t have much to say, other than that Sonic Team “have begun production on the next major Sonic title.” He added that the 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.”
