Sonic Frontiers announced, launching late 2022

During The Game Awards 2021, Sega revealed Sonic Frontiers for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC.

The reveal trailer doesn’t actually show any gameplay, though we did get some clips of various realistic-looking areas (and a not-so-realistic Sonic). Sega is describing the game as “open-zone” rather than open-world, so it sounds like areas will still be separated, but not linear.

Sonic Frontiers was originally announced alongside Sonic Colors: Ultimate and Sonic Origins back in May, though it didn’t have a name at that point.

It’s been a while since the last good mainline 3D Sonic game (even the aforementioned Sonic Colors: Ultimate had some issues at launch), and a more open structure might be what the franchise needs at this point.
