At Sonic the Hedgehog's 25th anniversary celebration last year, we got wind of
two new Sonic
titles. One was Sonic Mania
and the other was a modernized Sonic
title going by the placeholder name
or Project Sonic 2017
The finalized name for Project Sonic
has been announced
to be Sonic Forces
. A newly-released screenshot shows Sonic standing over the landscape of a ruined city as an army of robots marches by, a scene similar to what we already saw in the previously-released teaser trailer
for the game.
The official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account also lets us know to "Stay tuned tomorrow for the first gameplay footage of Modern Sonic."
By the end of Friday, we should have more news on the modern Sonic Forces
, currently scheduled for a holiday 2017 launch. Sonic Mania
, a mash-up and love letter to the classic Sonic
games, will be out this spring.
