Another New Sonic Game is Coming Next Year – Rumour

A leaked document claims that Sega will launch another new mainline Sonic game in 2024, along with DLC was Sonic Superstars.

Sega has kept up a steady stream of new Sonic content over the last couple of years, and as many might be expecting, it seems like the company has plans to keep that going with plenty more for fans of the IP to look forward to in the coming year.

An alleged internal Sega document detailing the company’s plans for Sonic releases in 2024 were recently shared on Reddit (via @DPlexHD on Twitter) before promptly being deleted. As per these documents, not only is Sega planning to release DLC for upcoming 2D sidescroller Sonic Superstars sometime next year, it also intends to release another new mainline Sonic title in 2024. Apparently its full release will also be preceded by the launch of a prologue episode of some sort.

2024 will apparently also see the release of the third season of Netflix’s animated series Sonic Prime, as well as the Knuckles TV show, with Idris Elba reprising his role as the titular protagonist. Both of these shows are planned for Q1 of 2024, as per the document, in addition to the third Sonic the Hedgehog movie in December, and a new Sonic mobile game sometime in Spring.

2022 saw the launch of new open world 3D platformer Sonic Frontiers, which has also continued to receive post-launch content in the months since its release, so fans of the Sega property have clearly had no shortage of new content to dive into of late. If Sega’s plans for the next 12 months or so of Sonic do indeed look as packed as this alleged leaked document suggests, it should be interesting to see when the company chooses to officially announce these details.

Earlier this year, Sega also said it was “considering reboots and remakes” as far as future Sonic releases were concerned.

In the meantime, Sonic Superstars is due out imminently, on October 17, for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
