A new Sonic game is set to arrive in 2017, Gematsu reports.
Sega apparently made the announcement at the character's 25th anniversary event in Tokyo by long-time Sonic developer Takash Iizuka.
MCV understands that Sonic is set to have a big focus at Comic-Con in San Diago next month, so we can expect to see something then.
Sega has a number of Sonic projects this year, including Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice for 3DS, Mario & Sonic at the Rio Olympics for Wii U and 3DS, and Sonic will also appear in LEGO Dimensions.
Sonic's 25th Anniversary Party takes place on Saturday, July 23.
