SEGA postponed Sonic Frontiers to “further refine” the quality

Sonic Frontiers, a new Sonic adventure set in a vast environment, was announced by SEGA last year. Some fans may be asking why it took the firm so long to finally reveal a new game, and the corporation has finally addressed the issue.

Sonic Frontiers was initially scheduled to be released in 2021, according to SEGA’s last investor briefing. SEGA, on the other hand, postponed the game’s release to assure its quality. After that, the firm said that it had “high hopes” for the game.

Quality before speed

Q: Looking at the video, “SONIC FRONTIERS” looks like an open world kind of concept. Is that correct? Also, if you have any target number of sales, can you please share?

A: As for target number, because this is a completely new title for the first time in many years, and we are planning for a global multi-platform roll-out, we would like to go beyond the first year sales number of “SONIC FORCES”, which is the previous title. For lifetime sales, we look forward to further increase.

We’d like for you to wait future announcement for the details, but this is the title with no compromise in terms of quality and that has taken on many new challenges. Originally it was planned to be released [in 2021], the 30th anniversary of Sonic, but we have postponed the release for a year in order to further brush up the quality.

Not only for this title, but during the development phase, we have been steadily conducting analysis to improve the quality of the title before release, such as introducing game testing based on external evaluations, and I have a feeling that it will become a good game and have high expectations for it.

Sonic Frontiers is currently slated for a Holiday 2022 release window.
