Blame the Snow Miser, the Heat Miser, or just plain Covid, but 2021 may very well be the year without a Sonic.
License Global Magazine’s April 2021 issue features a new licensing and partnership flier highlighting Sonic’s 30th anniversary accomplishments, including his game and movie success. But the whole thing seems to end on a somewhat concerning note:
Games, Movies, Animation, Mobile, Partnerships and More in 2022!
With Sonic Forces three in a half years behind us, many fans were pinning Sonic’s 30th to finally bring news of a fresh new platformer. Rumo(u)rs persist of a Sonic Colo(u)rs remake, but without an official announcement, we couldn’t comfortably say if it’s intended for 2021 or 2022.
This licensing flier is by no means a strict confirmation that we will not have some form of game or announcement in 2021, but the implications of a game next year does raise the question, what, if anything, is happening this year.
