Update: It looks like Sonic fans have been eagerly watching the backend of Steam for most of today. Tails' Channel, a popular Sonic website, has spotted that since Nintendo Life and other outlets shared the store release date from SteamDB, the date has been changed.

Now, instead of 8th November, the listing is now suggesting the game will be releasing on 3rd December. Still the Holiday season!

As Tails' Channel says on Twitter, this date is subject to change. It's already happened once in the last 24 hours, after all!

Original article: Sonic Frontiers is one of the most anticipated games of 2022, so when are we going to actually be able to play this new "open-zone" game featuring the blue blur? Sega has said it's releasing in holiday 2022, but a new listing on the backend of Steam may now have narrowed down the release window.

According to SteamDB, Steam's backend has updated the store release date of Sonic Frontiers from 1st September to 8th November. This change was made on 19th July. The new date apparently falls on a Tuesday, and it's highlighted how this date isn't at the beginning or end of a month - meaning it's less likely to be a placeholder.

While the date could still be in question, the month of November might actually be the release window for Sonic Frontiers. A backend listing on the PlayStation Store also previously referenced November - narrowing down the date to the 15th. "Holiday 2022" could potentially cover any of the later months of the year, so we'll just have to wait and see.
