The coronavirus health pandemic has become a major problem worldwide and it hindered several events and expos from moving forward. We’ve seen the likes of E3 2020 get cancelled to companies taking on the ability to share their latest announcement online. While the online alternative has proved to be a viable option to get content unveiled to the masses in an entertaining way, we’re not going to receive an online reveal treatment from Sega.
If you’ve been following Sonic the Hedgehog franchise then you may be aware that the beloved IP was about to receive a new announcement. SXSW was planned to have a panel where Sega would unveil something related to the Sonic the Hedgehog IP but as you may already know, SXSW was cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic. This may have reached fans who expected Sega to still showcase what they had planned to announce online, but a new tweet from the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account has confirmed that the news has been delayed.
According to the tweet, the team behind the announcement has decided to hold out and make sure that their team is safe before they are willing to showcase the SXSW content. We’re still uncertain just what the news was set to be. While some fans may have guessed it would have been a new video game, really it could have been anything such as a new television series or a comic book.
Really, we won’t know that Sega had planned until they are ready to share and it looks like we’ll get updated on Twitter on when that date will end up being.
