There has been another confirmed departure from the Sonic voice actor cast, the second in just the past week. Cindy Robinson, the voice of Amy Rose, has announced that she is no longer going to be voicing the character.
As was the case with Roger Craig Smith’s departure, she made the announcement herself on Twitter. When a fan asked her if she’ll still be a part of the cast, she replied with “It’s true. I’m loading out with my brilliant compadres”.
15 minutes later, when the same fan said that they’ll miss her, and thanked her for being a part of the Sonic community, she said “And thank you! It has been my honor”, confirming her departure even more.
Robinson had joined the Sonic voice actor cast around the same time as Roger Craig Smith. And now both are departing, which has raised serious question marks about the fate of the rest of the cast.
It is also raising serious question marks about what, exactly, SEGA’s currently planning. The departure of 2 Sonic voice actors, combined with heavy suspicions of Ken Pontac and Warren Graff are done writing for the games, have a lot of fans speculating of a major Sonic shake-up going on behind the scenes at SEGA. Whatever’s happening, it probably won’t be too much longer before we find out.
