During an interview in this week’s issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitzu (via Ryokutya2089), Sega’s Chief Strategy Officer Shuji Utsumi discussed the company’s plans through the year 2022.

Utsumi explained that while Sega has been steadily releasing new games on mobile devices, the gaming company hasn’t abandoned consoles, and aims to release many new games in the near future.

“We’re currently in the middle of an organizational shift,” he said, “and we’re currently revising various lineups [of games.]”

Sega has had a notable presence on mobile app stores these past couple of years. Beginning in 2017, the Sega Forever app launched on Android and iOS devices, and included over a dozen titles from the game maker’s illustrious career, from Streets of Rage to Sonic the Hedgehog 4, Vectorman and Crazy Taxi. Other noteworthy titles released on mobile are Sonic Jump, Football Manager 2020 Mobile, ChuChu Rocket! Universe, and Sega Heroes.

During this same interview, Utsumi hinted that a new game starring their ever popular bluehaired mascot may be on the way. “A new Sonic game announcement might be coming soon,” he teased.

In less than a month, E3 2021 will be taking place, and Sega has confirmed that they will be in attendance. May we see this Sonic reveal then? What do you hope to see from Sega at E3, and through the next year? I’d love to hear what you have to say!
