If you happen to observe both Sonic the Hedgehog or Geoff Keighley on Twitter, then you definately in all probability noticed an attention-grabbing alternate between the 2 just lately, with the Sonic account asking Geoff if he had any further tickets to The Sport Awards. After some banter about how the official Sonic account doesn’t observe Keighley on Twitter, we get affirmation that Sonic and Sega will probably be on the present later this week, implying a brand new sport will probably be revealed throughout it (through Twitter).

Whereas that will often be sufficient for us, that’s not the place the hints and leaks finish. As noticed by Reddit person JamKingVAC in a put up to the GamingLeaksAndRumors subreddit, the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise web page on Steam has been up to date to point out that the sequence consists of 35 video games as a substitute of 34.

The truth that Sega has trademarked the phrase Sonic Frontiers lends just a little extra credibility to this explicit rumor (through Video Sport Chronicles).

It is also a brand new 2D Sonic sport. Whereas these are a uncommon sight within the twenty first century, 2017’s Sonic Mania was fairly probably the very best Sonic sport for the reason that unique Genesis title. Given the optimistic reception to Sonic Mania, you’d assume that Sega would wish to observe up on it with a sequel, however we haven’t heard something about that within the years since.

For now, the proof factors to a brand new 3D Sonic sport referred to as Sonic Frontiers, however we’re nonetheless a good distance away from being certain about it.
