Sonic fans have long been interested in SEGA creating a new Sonic Adventure game. However, the sub-series hasn’t been touched in many, many years. And based on new comments from Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka, SEGA isn’t in a rush to create Sonic Adventure 3.
In an interview with Polygon, Iizuka explained:
“I hear people saying that they want Adventure 3, but the path that we’re on and … Adventure 3, what fans want that to be, might not be an advancement of the series. So I don’t want to do an Adventure 3 and step the franchise back just to give the fans what they want.”
Iizuka also explained that SEGA is trying to advance the series. Sonic Team isn’t interested in revisiting Sonic Adventure just for the sake of it.
“From the developer standpoint, every Sonic game that we’re making is taking new steps and advances, furthering the game in a new direction, and that’s dictated where the Sonic series has been going.”
“If we can get the gameplay to evolve and get to a place where Adventure 3 makes sense, then you might see an Adventure 3 come out. But we don’t want to take the entire series back to where it was just make people happy. We want to advance the idea of what a Sonic game is.”
