Sonic Origins’ possible release date

Sega will release the origins as a four-pack bundle that will include Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and the Sonic CD. Now you may wonder that some of these games are already available right? Initially, the games were available on all platforms but always remained scattered with their different release times. This had left fans in a dilemma as they had to own all the products to enjoy these games.

With the release of Sonic Origins on platforms such as the PlayStation, X-Box, Nintendo, and PC, fans will now be able to try their hand at the entire bundle in a single stretch. Fans have been upset as the series was expected to come out before the launch of Sonic the Hedgehog Two. Hence, they will have to continue with Sega’s older games available across different platforms.

Releasing Sonic Origins would be considered the right move as it would take off some heat from Sonic Frontiers, the company’s next big release. It would also help in generating a good amount of revenue with the recent release of their film Sonic the Hedgehog two.

Being in the industry for a long time helps companies understand how they can win their audience, and companies like Sega are always ready with their next move. With this, releasing two games side by side would not be the right move as it would divide the fan’s attention. The 4 – pack series can be available at the end of 2022 before the release of Sonic Frontiers. Fans, on the other hand, have started to make their predictions.

Have you seen the movie yet? Will you watch it later after buying the Sonic Origins bundle? Let me know in the comments sections!
