That there is a new sonic game on the way is no secret. Own Sega She has been talking about him for so long that she has even had time to regret it. A few months ago, the company came to admit that they announced it “too early” in their eagerness to satisfy fans after missing the Sonic 30th Anniversary (held on June 23, 2021 and barely saved with the remastering of Sonic Colors). The fact is that there is a new delivery on the way and the questions that surround it do not have to do with its existence, but with its possible name, date and playable proposal. Sega could have answered one of these questions inadvertently, since the developer has just registered the trademark “Sonic Frontiers” in Japan. It could not mean anything or be for a totally different product, but there is the data.
The only insurance about him new sonic is what we know through the statements of Takashi Iizuka, the head of the Sonic Team, who assured that the game will be launched in 2022 and “will place the pillars of the future of the saga”. The team wants it to be as influential as Sonic Sonic Adventure was in 1998, although it doesn’t seem like an easy challenge. It will be the franchise’s first action title since Sonic Forces (2017) and if it really does arrive in 2022, it won’t do it alone. For that same year we are also waiting for Sonic Origins, a compilation for current consoles that will include the first installments of the character: Sonic, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic CD. Let’s see what Sega finally has in store for us and who ends up bearing the name of Frontiers, since all the rumors pointed to Sonic 2022 it was actually going to be Sonic Rangers. Noise, noise, noise.
