‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ fans will have to wait a little while longer for the new game.

Sega PR’s Aaron Webber took to Zoom to ask burning questions about the next game from the blue-haired speedster and he revealed that they are taking their time with it.

Webber also confessed that previous games have compromised on “quality” because they rushed them out.

He said:

“The longer it takes the more antsy we get. Back in the day, every year there was a new Sonic game.

“But because of that, the quality of the games weren’t where they needed to be.

“A couple of years ago we said that’s going to change going forward. “We’re going to take more time going forward.

“So you’ll have to wait longer for trailers and stuff.

“The patience, hopefully, will be worth it in the end.

“As soon as we have news we’ll share it with you. That’s the best I can say.”

An official ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ announcement was due to happen at SXSW on April 15, but that was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A tweet on the official page for the game explained why they decided to hold off on their big reveal.

The post read:

“Hi everyone – we know delays are way past not cool. But with the world in its current state, and to keep our teams safe, we need to wait to show you our SXSW content until things have settled.

“Thanks for your patience, and we’ll let you know as soon as we have a date to share!”

It had been rumoured that a new ‘Sonic’ game was in the works for a while.

Meanwhile, in June, it has been speculated that Microsoft and Sega have a joint announcement on the way, which had been intended to be for Microsoft’s E3 2020 press conference.
