Sonic the Hedgehog’s 30th Anniversary celebrations may involve ports of popular titles to PC for the first time, if the online resume of a SEGA America employee is to be believed.
According to a new post on Reddit’s ‘Gaming Leaks and Rumours‘ channel, the LinkedIn profile for the Director of Production Services at SEGA of America includes the following job description:
*Port popular Sonic titles to new-to-SEGA PC platforms, expanding availability of Sonic titles to a wider digital audience.
While it’s no secret that SEGA has a general interest in increasing the number of PC ports it produces – something the company has clearly expressed during its financial briefings – this is the first time we’ve heard of Sonic titles specifically being mentioned.
Although many fans have taken to modifying the Steam version of Sonic Generations in order to play adapted levels from Sonic Unleashed, it remains that the popular Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game has never had a formal PC release. Sonic Colours was also exclusively released for Nintendo’s Wii in 2010, making it a potential candidate for a PC port as well. Beyond that, there’s… Shadow the Hedgehog? Sonic Boom? Sonic 2006?
Obviously, don’t get your hopes up until SEGA officially announces something. But it definitely sounds like the company is making more of an effort to entertain PC players. We’ll let you know if anything comes of this as soon as the news drops!
Thanks to all who sent this in as a tip!
