Rumor: Sonic Superstars getting DLC in 2024, new game next holiday
Information has seemingly come to light regarding SEGA’s plans for Sonic the Hedgehog, including DLC for Sonic Superstars and a new game entirely for 2024.
A brand and licensing presentation from SEGA of America was spotted that goes over the company’s overall plans for the franchise. Sonic Superstars, which is about to launch on Switch, will supposedly be getting DLC at some point next year. SEGA is also apparently planning a brand new Sonic game entirely for the 2024 holiday season, though the presentation doesn’t go into specifics aside from mentioning a “prologue” planned a few months before launch.
We have a look at the relevant slide below. Note that the presentation’s validity has not been confirmed – which is why we’re marking this as a rumor.
None of this news is particularly surprising, but the unspecified new game should lead to plenty of fans speculation. It’s unlikely that the 2024 Sonic game would be a sequel to Sonic Frontiers since the title came out last year and just received its final content update. We’re just now getting Sonic Superstars (with DLC in the pipeline), so it wouldn’t be a mainline 2D Sonic either.
What do you think SEGA could have in store for Sonic the Hedgehog in 2024? Let us know in the comments.
