Sonic Team confirms new game is under development

If you watched SEGA's e3 livestream... in fact, let's pretend that never happened

The Sonic Team have been talking to Famitsu about the thing that every Sonic fan has been waiting to hear… the possibility of a new game being developed. 

And, judging by the translations provided by Soah City, the team might well have answered some prayers.

When Famitsu asked about the future of the world's favourite hedgehog, Game director Takashi Iizuka said: "We at Sonic Team – are developing a completely new game, as well as developing a full movie, actively done by Sony Pictures, and animation on Sonic Boom. We are also ready to improve sponsor ties." 

"The most important thing is not the fact the series survived for 25 years, but how many games was developed. Our goal – add something new and overcome any potential hardships."

A new Sonic game has been rumoured to be in the works for some time, in fact, many fans sort of expected an announcement at E3. However, it turns out SEGA were livestreaming to talk a bit more about Yakuza 0 and announce a new Sonic competition.
