Sonic 4: Episode 2 To Be Last Episode; Sonic Team Looks Towards Future


With the news that Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 would not be coming to WiiWare, producer Takashi Iizuka has announced that Sonic Team are “not planning to release another episode”. This could be the death knell for Sonic on the current generation but the development team are looking towards the future.

Iizuka has been commenting on what the much-rumoured next generation could do for Sonic and he hinted at two different versions of Sonic branching off- much like in Sonic Generations. Along with this, he opined that the new technology would work wonders for Sonic and would “give more presence to Sonic.”

Despite no plans for the continuation of the series, Sonic 4: Episode 2 is out on Xbox 360, PS3, iOS, Android, PC and Windows Phone later this year.
