Sonic Frontiers is presently slated for a vacation 2022 release. But considering the standard of the crippled — and the difficulties of crippled improvement during the ongoing pandemic — don’t beryllium amazed if the rubric gets bumped to 2023. Frontiers looks to beryllium a immense leap guardant for the loveable hedgehog, and Sonic Team isn’t apt to unreserved it to market. We besides haven’t seen immoderate caller gameplay footage (or updates connected its development) passim each of 2022. Either Sonic Team is keeping the crippled nether wraps until the precise past minute, oregon things are progressing slower than expected.
According to Sonic Team, Sonic Frontiers volition beryllium disposable connected the pursuing platforms:
- PlayStation 5
- PlayStation 4
- Xbox Series X|S
- Xbox One

Sonic Frontiers Announce Trailer
No authoritative gameplay has been revealed, and we tin lone conjecture however Sonic Frontiers volition grip erstwhile it arrives astatine the process extremity of 2022. However, a statement connected its authoritative website does spill a fewer details:
“An acquisition similar ne'er before, accelerate to caller heights and acquisition the thrill of high-velocity, open-zone freedom,” reads the Sonic Frontiers website. “Battle almighty enemies arsenic you velocity done the Starfall Islands — landscapes brimming with dense forests, overflowing waterfalls, sizzling deserts, and more!”
Sonic Frontiers is intelligibly billed arsenic an open-world game, but small is known beyond that breathtaking fact. Sonic, Tails, and Amy were each confirmed for the formed during a Sonic Official Livestream, and we wouldn’t beryllium amazed to spot Knuckles marque an appearance, too.
Sonic Team isn’t mentioning which antagonist Sonic volition beryllium chasing down successful this installment, though Doctor Eggman seems similar a logical choice. Not lone bash the gigantic robots successful the trailer acceptable his MO, but offering him arsenic a villain successful Sonic Frontiers would connection an casual mode to cross-promote the crippled with Sonic Movie 2 — which is besides slated for a 2022 release.
No accusation regarding multiplayer has been revealed by Sonic Team. However, the rubric is presently listed arsenic a single-player action-adventure crippled connected Steam.
