Sega has recently unveiled their new project, “SONIC2020”.
What is SONIC2020?
Sega recently released a new page on their website “Sonic Channel“. The page is entirely in Japanese, but translated, it mentions that “[We] launched a project entitled “SONIC2020” to deliver a variety of new information and plans for Sonic on the 20th of every month during 2020, entitled “SONIC2020″!”. Broken down, Sega is telling us that on the 20th of each month, they will be giving us new information on Sonic. Additionally, they mention that “The Sonic Channel is recruiting fan art for Sonic and releasing wallpapers and calendars with original designs.” As they often do, Sega is involving their fans to help create this event. As a final quote, they mention “A variety of related events are scheduled for 2020, so watch out for “Sonic the Hedgehog,” which is set to gain momentum ahead of its 30th anniversary in 2021.”

Why should you care?
This makes us wonder what Sega could be up to. If Sonic is set to “gain momentum” in 2021, could they be making a new Sonic game? The reason this is so interesting is because Sega haven’t really done something like this before. Of course, it could just be to celebrate his 30th anniversary, but it would be unusual for them to go all-out like this. This GBATemp post shows that many people are speculating a new Sonic game, but Sega haven’t given us much more info to work with and, honestly, we just have to wait and see what Sega is going to do with it. As of now, this is a summary of all we know, but we will keep you updated if anything happens.
