“Did someone say news?” Sega tweeted on Tuesday. “Tune in at 9am PT on 5/27 for a first look at some of the projects, partnerships, and events for our #Sonic30th celebration!”
Sega previously promised to mark Sonic’s 30th anniversary with the release of new games and some major announcements.
In February, Paramount Pictures released the first teaser for Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which is scheduled to hit cinemas in April 2022. And in March, Netflix announced a new Sonic the Hedgehog 3D animated series called Sonic Prime.
Sega is also reportedly planning to stage a Sonic the Hedgehog music concert in 2021 as part of its 30th anniversary plans.
Over 1.14 billion Sonic game units have been sold and downloaded since the series debuted in 1991, according to Sega.
