Sonic Origins Developers are sad as they don’t like the state in which their game is in! 

Even after getting a positive review from fans, sonic co-developer, Headcannon seemed unhappy with the game’s current condition.

It all started a week back when social media and forums published videos showing multiple bugs, glitches, and general messiness. There was negative feedback regarding micro-transactions (These can lock some pretty weird stuff behind a paid wall) that one could see in their reviews.

A common statement, saying ‘new game has bugs’ rolled out in public, directly affecting the game’s developers. This implies that the Sonic games have previously suffered in the past, thanks to their neglect of the remastered versions. With that, they’ve once again landed in trouble with Sonic Origins.

Although, this time, things are different, as it has severely affected Sonic’s co-developer, Headcannon. They put out a statement saying, “This is frustrating. I won’t lie and say that there weren’t issues in what we gave to Sega, but what is in Origins is also not what we turned in. Integration introduced some wild bugs that conventional logic would have one believe were our responsibility- a lot of them aren’t.”

Apart from this, Headcannon also accepted sending a rushed product and neglecting its quality. Although, they believed that Sega ruined the game by adding bugs that weren’t present in the original build. Sadly, it affected them a lot as they had put in months of hard work to design this classic release.
