  • No Sonic Central Planned for June 2024, SEGA Confirms

    No news on a new show coming later this year, either.

    SEGA has revealed that a 2024 edition of Sonic Central currently is not on the cards, with no official showcase stream taking place in June and no further news to announce regarding a future episode.

    Sonic brand social media and community manager Katie Chrzanowski made a brief statement about the lack of a Sonic Central during an impromptu 'Sonic Official' livestream set up to celebrate Sonic's upcoming 33rd birthday.

    "I see a lot of people asking about Sonic Central... just because there's not one happening today - and I will say there's not one happening this month - doesn't mean that there's never going to be one again," Chrzanowski said. "We don't have news on when a Sonic Central is going to be, but we have not forgotten about them.

    "So don't worry, keep checking the official channels for any news on a future Sonic Central."

    The news is a bit of a blow to fans hoping to see a formal showcase during the summer months - since 2021, SEGA has made a habit of running a Sonic Central annually between late May to mid-June - and it would have been great to have something to follow-up on the community hype surrounding Sonic X Shadow Generations' recent news and reveals. But perhaps, besides the game, the Sonic brand doesn't have a lot to share right now that could justify an extended showcase production.

    The comments can be heard at the 10:35 mark in the below video:

    It's worth watching the rest of the broadcast as the Sonic brand team go over a few of the cool new merch that is due to release later this year - such as the new LEGO sets featuring Super Sonic and Shadow.

    Kind of a shame, but also not? Even though we've got SXSG in the horizon and the third movie a couple of months after that, there's not really a lot of news we're currently waiting on. 2024 seems like it's going to be a relatively quiet year in terms of news about games. Merch and the like can't really sustain a presentation. There's not even been much call around these parts for a presentation this summer, unlike in other recent years when we've been starved any developments for a long time.

    Given how stacked 2023 was in terms of Sonic content, I can't say I blame them for going slower this year.

    No Sonic Central? Well NOW how am I supposed to get my hopes up for Sonic Superstars Plus? I can't get my hopes crushed like this! 😭

    Well, that’s too bad. Still, they have shown a lot to the point that there may not have been much to show. I know there could be some things, but I am not sure if those other things, whatever they are, would be worth making a Sonic Central for, especially if they were still not enough to warrant one.

    Um, I can kind of see your point, except I am not sure if it would fill up 15 minutes or whatever amount of time the Central would have.

    Still, what I said was assuming there was not much new stuff would be shown in the presentation, which was not counting what you said.

    I think a lot has been said for Sonic X Shadow Generations though, and I think, based on what I read, that a Sonic 3 trailer is supposed to come in July.

    Would you guys do a video in your YouTube channel about the news we got in June to recap all the stuff announced?, is not much, but at least it would be nice to do our own Sonic Central just for fun.
