Sonic Team Says 2021 is the “Next Big Year” for Sonic

Sonic Generations

It has been two years since the release of Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, but Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka suggests that Sonic the Hedgehog will soon be in again.

During an E3 2019 interview with GameInformer‘s Brian Shea, Iizuka shed some light on what fans can expect in the next two years.

“2017 was a big year for Sonic. The next big year for Sonic is 2021. That’s the 30-year anniversary for Sonic. We are now preparing.”

Iizuka also gave a teasing “maybe” to the suggestion that players would see another big milestone game in 2021, similar to how Sonic Generations was treated in 2011.

Also touched on in Shea’s interview was Sonic’s drop dash, a move first introduced in Sonic Mania and later brought to Sonic Forces and the Sega Ages version of Nintendo Switch’s Sonic the Hedgehog.

“We had a good reaction for Sonic Mania, so that’s why we implemented it to Classic Sonic in Sonic Forces,” Iizuka said. “Drop dash is very [well-liked] now because of Sonic Mania. That’s why I requested it.”

At this year’s South by Southwest, Iizuka revealed that the next mainline Sonic game was already in development. With the Sonic the Hedgehog live-action film set for release in 2020, fans can be optimistic about 2021 being the year to see this new title.
