Next-Gen Sonic Game Coming in 2015?

Last Updated: February 3, 2014


We’ve got a new rumor for you this week, and this time it’s about Sonic the Hedgehog. A toy manufacturer called Jazwares had a booth advertising its Sonic merchandise at a Nuremberg toy festival. According to the German website Spindash, a sign at the booth listed new Sonic games, including an untitled game for 2015.

The 2015 game was followed by the logos for the Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One, which suggests it will be released for all three systems.

Due to Jazware’s relationship with the Sonic brand, we feel they are in a good position to know if there’s going to be an upcoming game. On the other hand, Sega and Nintendo made a deal for three Nintendo-exclusive Sonic games, of which only two (Lost World and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Games) have so far been released. Does this mean the Jazwares sign is incorrect in showing the PS4 and Xbox One logos for the new game, or is there an additional Sonic game in the works, as well?

We will keep you updated as we learn more.
