Game news Sonic Frontiers: a release date in sight for the open-world at the Breath of the Wild?
In 2022, the famous blue mascot of SEGA wants to demonstrate that it is not an icon of the past. On the big screen in dark rooms and on new and old-generation consoles, this dear swift hedgehog is putting all the chances on his side to leave his mark on the year to come and not be satisfied with a simple passage flash. If, for the moment, no date has been announced for the release of the game, it could be that a recent rumor gives us a first clue.
True to his reputation, Sonic is currently heading, head down, towards the year 2022 with, at least, two projects under the elbow : a new film adaptation, presented during the Game Awards ceremony and expected in April 2022, as well as a new open-world game which is strongly inspired by the tree structure by The Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild and which has earned it worldwide success.
After a quick stop during the Game Awards to come and confirm the regular hallway noises about him, the SEGA mascot left just as quickly without taking the time to reveal more to us. Right now, a new video clip, some visuals, and a release window set for Q4 2022 are the few things we can get our teeth into.. However, a recent find indicates a potential release date!
At the borders of 2022?
We owe the rumor of the day to the PlayStation Game Size site: very often reliable in terms of items collected in PlayStation databases, the site would have got its hands on more details about the release of Sonic: Frontiers, scheduled for the end of 2022. As always, in this type of situation, information of this caliber should be taken with a grain of salt pending any form of official confirmation from SEGA.
In the meantime, here’s what we learn there! If this is just a potential, and provisional, release date for the title but the database reports a release in mid-November, around November 15. Information that gains credibility when it is linked to two very precise details : correspondence with the calendar and the latest video game releases from the SEGA mascot.
Indeed, the date of November 15, 2022 corresponds to a Tuesday, the day on which the releases are announced, and a handful of games from the universe of Sonic have often been released in these waters, like Sonic Unleashed (28/11/2008), Sonic Colours (12/11/2010), Sonic Generations (04/11/2011) and Sonic Forces (07/11/2017). These two elements are, of course, interesting because they have the merit of underlining a certain trend on the side of SEGA, but must be confirmed before being taken at face value.
While waiting for a formalization in due form, you can already learn about the title and the recent information around the universe of Sonic thanks to This article. Finally, let’s remember that Sonic Frontiers is expected on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and Switch.
