In a rather confusing turn of events, SEGA has seemingly dashed the hopes of Android-owning Sonic fans across the globe who were eagerly anticipating the release of Sonic Jump, as the official product page for the mobile-only game – which only a week ago revealed a November release date for Google Play – has since been updated to list only the iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) that the game is currently out on.
So, at first glance, one can assume that the Android listing was a mistake in the first place and the game was always intended to be iOS exclusive. But look a little further than the “available on” section of the page and there are still glimmers of hope for Android users.
Firstly, and most noticeably, an “Android App on Google Play” logo can be seen clearly at the bottom of the page next to the iOS-specific “Available on the App Store”. Additionally, in the copyright listing at the very bottom, the quote “Android is a trademark of Google Inc.” can also be seen. As such, it seems that an Android release is – or at least, was – being considered.
The conclusion? Don’t give up hope for Sonic Jump yet, Android owners. The signs are still pointing towards a release on Google Play, despite the lack of a listing in the “available on” section now (which – it should be noted – originally listed the Android version as being “out now” at the same time as the iOS release, so it is not a totally reliable source).
