SEGA has been celebrating Sonic’s 25th anniversary for the past couple of months with brand new Sonic merchandise and promotions. Plenty of hints were dropped about a potential new Sonic game, but SEGA has never officially announced that one was in development. During a recent interview with Famitsu magazine, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka confirmed that “a completely new game” is coming. In addition to the new Sonic game, Iizuka also mentioned the Sonic Boom series and the Sonic movie from Sony Pictures.
“We at Sonic Team – are developing a completely new game, as well as developing a full movie, actively done by Sony Pictures, and animation on Sonic Boom. We are also ready to improve sponsor ties. The most important thing is not the fact the series survived for 25 years, but how many games was developed. Our goal – add something new and overcome any potential hardships.” — Takashi Iizuka
