Sonic, new games on the way: what can we expect?
The weight of the news rests on the shoulders of this new Sonic Team project of which little news has been shared. As the editor explains in a press release, this project will take us to the beginning of “a new adventure with a new title as a flagship”, by the creative team behind Sonic Generations and Sonic Forces.
On the other hand, the closest project goes through Sonic Colors: Ultimate, the remastering of the 2010 work.
