The latest issue of License Global unveiled a new advertisement that featured the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise’s 30th anniversary.
The advertisement, now in its second iteration, teased the usual “games, movies, animations, mobile, and partnerships,” but with a new tag: “and more in 2022.”
With the Sonic movie sequel and Sonic Prime scheduled for 2022, the vague disclosure led many fans to believe that the next game or mainline title won’t be unveiled or released until next year.
