The release date for Sonic Frontiers may have been announced earlier than planned, thanks to a Japanese TV commercial.
The game, which will be shown tonight as part of Gamescom‘s Opening Night Live show, will apparently release on November 8, 2022.
The commercial has reportedly been appearing on Japanese television for a while, but with no release date.
However, Twitter user @Tracked_TD noted that the trailer had been uploaded to YouTube, with a release date added. The video has since been changed to Private.
Promotional material for merchandise related to the game pointed to the release date being November 15, although this trailer appears to contradict that.
Earlier this month, following a financial briefing, Sega Sammy senior executive vice president Koichi Fukazawa and executive vice president Makoto Takahashi answered questions on a number of topics.
One question asked whether Sega was considering postponing the release of Sonic Frontiers to improve it, following feedback from players and the press.
“We do not consider postponing the launch at this point,” Sega’s official English translation of the response reads.
However, the publisher has still to officially confirm the game’s exact release date. It is expected that the release date reveal was planned for tonight’s show.
