Launch date

Sonic Frontiers is presently slated for a vacation 2022 launch. However contemplating the dimensions of the sport — and the difficulties of recreation improvement in the course of the ongoing pandemic — don’t be stunned if the title will get bumped to 2023. Frontiers seems to be to be an enormous leap ahead for the loveable hedgehog, and Sonic Crew isn’t prone to rush it to market. We additionally haven’t seen any new gameplay footage (or updates on its improvement) all through all of 2022. Both Sonic Crew is conserving the sport beneath wraps till the final minute, or issues are progressing slower than anticipated.

Sonic Frontiers is clearly billed as an open-world recreation, however little is understood past that thrilling reality. Sonic, Tails, and Amy have been all confirmed for the solid throughout a Sonic Official Livestream, and we wouldn’t be stunned to see Knuckles make an look, too.

Sonic Crew isn’t mentioning which antagonist Sonic will likely be chasing down on this installment, though Physician Eggman looks as if a logical selection. Not solely do the big robots within the trailer match his MO, however providing him as a villain in Sonic Frontiers would supply a straightforward technique to cross-promote the sport with Sonic Film 2 — which can also be slated for a 2022 launch.
