SEGA shared more details about Sonic Frontiers, including its plot and development team. Sonic Frontiers is described as an “open-zone experience”, by Sonic Team, and will be helmed by producer Sachiko Kawamura and director Morio Kishimoto. Ian Flynn, best known for writing Archie’s and IDW’s Sonic The Hedgehog comic book series, will also reportedly be handling the game’s story.
According to Sonic Stadium, Polygon apparently shared a brief synopsis of the plot, which was later removed;
In Sonic Frontiers, Sonic’s long-time nemesis Dr. Eggman discovers an ancient technology on the Starfall Islands and installs his AI program SAGE to hack in and take over. But there is more to this technology than he realizes, and unintended consequences immediately come to bear. Sonic must race against time to discover the truth, save his friends and maybe even save himself at the same time.
Notably, the official synopsis aligns with the rumors that have been circulating about the game earlier this year.
