Sega Teases Possible Sonic Racing Announcement Coming Soon

Sonic is tapping his foot impatiently as we speak.


Sega issued a teaser for what appeared to be a new Sonic Racing game in March, and now it appears the company is finally nearly ready to reveal it. During a recent official livestream (via Nintendo Everything), the company hinted that news will be coming very soon.

"A lot of you have been waiting for news and information, and you're very curious about what that title was that we teased back at South by Southwest, and at least in the near future, you might be hearing some more news and information about that," said Sega PR's Aaron Webber. "So hey, that’s coming up. Get ready. It's on the horizon."

Now Playing: GS News Update: Sonic Mania Plus Announced, New Racing Game Teased

Of course, "on the horizon" isn't exactly a clear timeline. With E3 just around the corner, it stands to reason that Sega will take the wraps off sometime before then, but that's a wide range of time that encompasses almost a month. Webber also didn't confirm that the game is Sonic Racing, but given the revving engines and bright prominent "R" in the initial tease, that's hardly a guess at this point.

In the same event in March, Sega announced Sonic Mania Plus, a physical re-release of last year's acclaimed 2D Sonic game. Plus features a new Encore mode and two additional playable characters: Mighty and Ray. Additionally, the company is partnering with Puma to sell sneakers inspired by the blue hedgehog.
