If you’re still not over Sonic on Nintendo consoles, I’ve got news from this decade for you: Sonic’s on PC, too. Most of the blue hedgehog’s recent titles have launched simultaneously across PC and consoles, and Sega has wasted no time in confirming that the next big entry in the series will come to home computers, too.
The next Sonic game developed by Sonic Team doesn’t yet have a title, but it is due to launch in 2022 across PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and yes, PC. A brief teaser trailer simply shows Sonic running through a forest environment, leaving behind a trail that looks vaguely like the word ‘zap’.
That’s not the only Sonic game announced in today’s livestream. Sonic Colors: Ultimate is an updated version of the 2010 game due to launch on September 7, 2021, and this version is coming to PC – but only on the Epic Games Store for too. (With this precedent set, don’t be surprised if further Sonic games, including the newly-announced one, end up on Epic, too.)
The Sonic Origins collection, featuring Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, 3, Sonic & Knuckles, and Sonic CD is also on the way, but no platforms have been announced so far.
