SEGA today acknowledged an press statement that may have been accidentally sent to a number of press outlets that referred to a title that was not officially disclosed in Thursday’s Sonic Central presentation.
A statement published by the company yesterday afternoon was believed to refer the next mainline Sonic game as Sonic Rangers, a title that was leaked in official images the previous day.

In a reply to Eurogamer, SEGA said that yesterday’s statement was an “incorrect” revision. The company did not comment any further on the Sonic Rangers title.
The acknowledgement came after data miners and Tails’ Channel members uncovered the metadata from promotional images that mysteriously disclosed the Sonic Rangers title. The news is expected to fuel online speculation if more information about Rangers may have be published in the past, much of which remains to be unconfirmed.
