In a bit more legal Sonic news, fans are eagerly awaiting Sonic Frontiers, an open-world Sonic The Hedgehog game set to launch in “late 2022”. However, Sega recently confirmed that it was meant to launch in 2021.

“Not only for this title, but during the development phase, we have been steadily conducting analysis to improve the quality of the title before release, such as introducing game testing based on external evaluations, and I have a feeling that it will become a good game and have high expectations for it.”

In other gaming news, a new Dying Light 2 mod has made night time even harder to survive.
