Sonic The Hedgehog

If the video clips for Team Sonic Racing weren't already satisfying enough, the head of Sonic Team, Takashi Iizuka, has confirmed the next big entry in the mainline Sonic series is officially underway. The announcement was made during a panel at SXSW Gaming 2019. Other than this, no other information is currently known about the new Sonic game and there's no indication as to when Sega will reveal more about it.

The most recent Sonic release was the enhanced title Sonic Mania Plus in 2018. The lead developer, Christian Whitehead, has since gone on to form his own studio - Evening Star - with several other Sonic Mania team members. The most recent 3D title in the Sonic series was Sonic Forces, released on multiple platforms in 2017.
