Sonic Frontiers should see the light of day at the end of 2022 and Sega says it wants to aim for excellent marks and is betting everything on this new opus.
Sonic has been on the rise for some time, thanks in particular to the success of his two films, which Sega describes as “enormous successes”, and if we will not go that far we are forced to admit they’re pretty good. In all cases, it allowed the blue hedgehog to get a second life and Sega intends to take advantage of it.
Sonic is under pressure this year
While an umpteenth revisit of the first opuses will be released by June with Sonic Origins, the big new generation piece, Sonic Frontiers, is planned for the end of the year and Sega wants to be a hit.
We have set important internal goals, as the correlation between external rating agency scores and sales is high in Europe and North America. If the game gets a high rating, then it can become a must-have and possibly synergize with sales. So we are currently working very hard to improve the quality of the game in view of its sales. for the holiday season.
The publisher therefore wishes to capitalize as much as possible on its mascotwhile the Sonic Team would like Frontiers to become at least as important for the license as Sonic Adventure has beenand even start a whole new generation of games.
Sonic Adventure laid the foundation for 20 years of Sonic titles after its release, so in the same way, we really hope that this new title releasing in 2022 will lay the foundation for future Sonic titles to follow. In any case, this is the challenge that the team has imposed on itself.
As a reminder, Sonic Frontiers will offer an open-world adventure, a first in the series.
Wait, is it me or Sega takes us for sheep?
