‘News about Sonic Frontiers’ will be shared during Gamescom
The Sega platformer still doesn’t have a confirmed release date
Geoff Keighly and Sega have announced that a “new look and news” about Sonic Frontiers will be a part of Gamescom Opening Night Live.
“It’s true:@sonic_hedgehog is coming to @gamescom Opening Night Live!,” Keighly tweeted.
“Tune in live on Tuesday, August 23 for a world premiere new look and news about SONIC FRONTIERS during OPENING NIGHT LIVE!”
Sonic Frontiers is still slated to release in 2022 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Switch and PC, and Sega has said it’s targeting high review scores for the game.
However, no firm release date has been revealed.
Sonic Frontiers will be playable in the UK for the first time in September as part of the EGX convention taking place in London from 22-25 September.
Despite fan backlash to the game from fans, Sonic Team studio head Takashi Iizuka told VGC that the game wouldn’t be dealyed to address the feedback.
“It’s not really that surprising,” Iizuka replied. “We do realise everyone is just kind of reacting to the videos that they saw, and because they don’t understand what this new gameplay is they’re kind of comparing it to other games that they already know.”
Gamescom 2022 is set to take place from August 24-28 and will be a hybrid event held on-site in Cologne and simultaneously online.
The show will kick off with Geoff Keighly’s Opening Night Live, a broadcast which typically includes new game announcements and huge trailers.
2021’s Opening Night Live saw the official reveal of the Saints Row reboot, Marvel’s Midnight Suns and also the reveal of Halo Infinite‘s release date and special edition console.
