Iizuka: “We Will Probably See Sonic Going into Other Genres of Games”
In an interview with GameReactor.eu, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka talks about where we might see the Sonic franchise go in the future. When asked how he sees the next 20 years for Sonic, Iizuka explains that while Sonic Team will keep a focus on Sonic action titles, they would also like Sonic to reach out to a wider audience. To achieve this, Iizuka says “We will probably see Sonic going into other genres of games and also seeing Sonic in different media.”
I can see this news get a lot of rage, but I personally wouldn't mind seeing Sonic explore more genres alongside the main action games.
