SAW has very high expectations for Sonic Frontiers, both qualitatively and commercially. The new chapter of the series does not yet have a well-defined release date, although the Japanese company has already reiterated that Sonic Frontiers is scheduled for Christmas 2022, with new information coming soon.
In any case it is important for SEGA that the next main adventure of Sonic get great ratings from critics: “We have set internal targets, as the correlation between external specialist reviews and sales is consistent in Europe and North America. If the game scores high, it can become a must-have game by generating synergy with sales, so we are working hard to improve the quality of the game ahead of the Christmas season.“, they explain Haruki Satomi And Koichi Fukazawarespectively CEO and CFO of SEGA.
Curiously, SEGA’s vision is diametrically opposed to that expressed by the creators of Evil Dead The Game: for Saber Interactive Metacritic no longer has weight for the success of a game, and the great commercial results are mainly linked to the media attention and the work of social media and influencers, rather than the evaluations of the press.
Different opinions aside, he expects to see Sonic Frontiers in action again, so as to understand even better what to expect from the return of the blue hedgehog scheduled for Christmas 2022.
