Sonic Episode III? “No plans” says Sega

Sonic will return with his second downloadable adventure this year in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II. But one might think that the episodic nature of this latest project would mean there were plenty adventures to come. Well, maybe not.

Sonic Team boss Takashi Iizuka has told Digital Spy that the company has no plans for further episodes after the release of the latest.

“We are looking forward to hearing the feedback from the users for Episode 2, but we are currently not planning to release another episode,” he said.

That’s not an outright no, then. In fact it sounds like a positive reception could get a third entry made, though the second will actually have to be pretty good to earn it.

Sonic 4 Episode II launches in May.
