@Hawkflight I'm referring to Sonic Team.
(Colors, Generations and Lost World)
So just when hype couldn't get any higher...
"It was also announced in the press release that Ivo Gerscovich will now be the chief head brand officer of Sonic and senior vice president of Sega of America. Gerscovich will oversee and give direction on the future of Sonic the Hedgehog in future games, TV shows, retail products, and a feature-length movie."
So even if, god forbid, this year's game flops, Sonic STILL has another chance at the next title under a new chief.
Y'know what they should do this year? (along with the new game)
Sonic Team should make Sonic Decade Collection; a game that compiles every Sonic game from the Genesis debut to Sonic Adventure 2. 1991-2001. Every title on the Genesis, Game Gear, 32X, Sega CD, Saturn, and Dreamcast. The Ps4 & Xbox One totally have the capability to fit all those games, perfectly emulated.
