    Aaron is leaving the Sonic Social Media team.

      Wtf that’s out of nowhere. Damn...that’s surreal to hear...

      No he's not, it sounds like he's either had a promotion somewhere or has just decided to transfer department for a different job role.

      If it’s a promotion, that’s still him leaving his current position...so Thigolf isn’t wrong in saying that

      He's still leaving his position in the Sonic brand. He's saying goodbye, for crying out loud.

      It says he's moving to a new position in SEGA. So I guess we won't be seeing him run this account anymore, and I guess not in the livestreams too.

      I wish him luck in these future endeavors tho...

      I wonder where he's transferring. My gut feeling is saying that he's gonna try to push PSO2 up a bit, since he really likes it. I only see it as a good thing, because, while he did help popularize Sonic in social media and did some quite good stuff, he also kinda made the laughing stock image worse lately, at least in my opinion.

      Still, good luck to him wherever he's at now!

      When I saw the line, my mind thought it meant he was leaving SEGA, so the line did trip me up, even if either way it means he won't be present in the social media side any more.

      Good for him, and I will miss him; he had a good run. What's to become of Sonic's social media now?

      @Supah Berry well, Katie is gonna be the main force of the Sonic social media now, if she wasn't already.

       

      Also an interesting thought (thanks, Tracker) - apparently it's not uncommon for PR people to move up and be more involved in production. What if... 🤔

      It's pretty sobering to see Aaron's experiences about first picking up the Twitter in what was a particularly dark era of Sonic. Even with how grating some of the memes became after awhile, I really do think Aaron's position as PR/Social Media head was one of the very important turning points IMO.

      Now we'll never get Big's Grand Adventure: The Bloodening.

      Yeah, I had a feeling something like this might happen soon. Best of luck to him.

      I'll have to give myself a promotion! | Sonic the Hedgehog | Know ...

      Edit: I wonder if Aaron will appear in one final Sonic social media live-stream today?

      I'll definitely miss him, but at least he's being promoted within the company instead of going elsewhere. Hope that means even better things for him in the future.

      I hope the Twitter Takeovers can still continue. He seemed to have a pretty good handle on that. I appreciate that he set those up and followed through with constructing the answers for the voice actors as well as he did. My man, RubyEclipse. 

      Although I'm hoping this means I can stop hearing about the Game Grumps and cupcakes or whatever. I really don't get it.

      I hope his position is head of Sonic Team

      Well I wish him the best to where ever he's going. While I'll be one of the first to say that I don't fully agree with the direction the franchise's PR has taken as of late, he was definitely one of the more upfront and friendly faces at the company. Not to mention clearly a fan at heart.

       

      Though, this does worry me a bit. From all that we know about the dev side of the series over the better part of the last decade... he was almost always involved with getting the best content out. He clearly understood what a majority of fans wanted from the series and always engaged the community. With him, we knew that at least some of our worries were (at the very least) being heard by someone within Sega... who's going to do that now?

      A part of me is honestly praying that he's moving to a higher position within the series and not just leaving it entirely for another Sega group.

      @Strickerx5 I mean, I wonder if he really had that much influence, because aside from Mania, most Sonic content that was released with him around has still been pretty mediocre.

      Tbf, we've only had 3 real game releases during his run (and a M&S game or 2 but i can't bring myself to care). Not to mention all the things outside the games (and movie) which he had a pretty heavy hand in.

      Like, I didn't want to bring it up here, but if those leaked Forces notes are real... we're losing a voice here. I won't say it made a major difference in Force's case, but I'm always going to be on edge whenever one of the few visible sane folk leaves the room.
