Sonic Team involved with Sonic 4, after all

It appears the internet was jumping to conclusions a bit too fast; the development of Sonic 4 is indeed being handled by Dimps as previously reported, but not Dimps alone — Sonic Team has remained involved to some degree, or are perhaps even the main force behind the title.

Following listing Dimps as the developer of the new title, Sega has, with a simple statement, confirmed that Sonic Team is still involved. “Sonic 4 Episode I is being developed by Sonic Team in cooperation with Dimps,” the company has confirmed, saying nothing of the studios’ roles during development.
