New Sonic game announcement ‘a bit premature’ says Sonic Team head

May’s Sonic the Hedgehog livestream ended with a teaser for a new game from Sonic Team coming in 2022. It had a forest and some kind of digital effect when Sonic ran real fast and not much else to show. 

In an interview with 4Gamer translated by Nintendo Enthusiast, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka has admitted the announcement was made a little bit early. “We haven’t announced a brand new action game for the Sonic series since Sonic Forces,” he said, referring to the disappointing 2017 game, “and that caused fans to worry. While it was a bit premature, I wanted to at least take the occasion of the 30th anniversary to announce that a brand new title was in development.”
