Sega is set to unveil “Sonic Superstars,” a new addition to their long-running 2D platformer series. But that’s not all that’s in the pipeline for Sonic the Hedgehog fans; Sega is also bringing a multitude of Sonic-related content to other platforms.
A Knuckles TV Series is slated for a Paramount+ release, Netflix will host the third season of “Sonic Prime,” and additional downloadable content (DLC) is coming for “Sonic Superstars.”
Sega took a bold step in 2022 with “Sonic Frontiers,” introducing an open-world setting to the franchise for the first time. The game garnered a positive reception and has left fans eagerly awaiting what’s next.
While official details are scarce, unverified rumors are suggesting that Sega is far from done with the Sonic universe. Leaks originating from Reddit and covered by NintendoEverything hint at a new Sonic game projected for a holiday season release in 2024. Interestingly, this timeline aligns with the anticipated launch of the movie “Sonic the Hedgehog 3.”
Given the upcoming release of “Sonic Superstars,” it seems unlikely that Sega would roll out another 2D platformer in 2024. Similarly, the pattern of releases suggests that a direct sequel to “Sonic Frontiers” is unlikely. This has led to speculation that the next installment could be a spin-off game, aligning with Sega’s history of diversifying the Sonic franchise through titles like “Sonic Spinball” and “Sonic Riders.”
As tantalizing as these prospects are, it’s crucial to note that none of this has been officially confirmed by Sega. Until then, all leaked details and speculations should be treated with a healthy dose of skepticism.
