According to an interview with SEGA Europe Brand Manager David Corless by The Sonic Stadium, SEGA apparently has no plans to bring the popular Classic Sonic back after Sonic Generations is released.
Joscelyne asked Corless if he thinks there’s a possibility of seeing Classic Sonic in future games.
“Sonic Generations sees a classic and modern form of the blue blur running around loops in the same game. If the gameplay is received positively, do you think there’s an opportunity to bring Classic Sonic back into future titles?”
Corless replied with the following “brutally honest” answer.
“Do you know what? There are no plans, to be brutally honest, to bring Classic Sonic back. The reason for bringing him back for this game was because this is a celebration of 20 years of Sonic. It was a real fitting time to do it. He’s really well loved. Let’s see how Generations does. You can never say never in this industry, but at the moment there are no plans.”
This could very well cause Classic Sonic fans to become outraged at Classic Sonic being featured in Generations but not in Sonic the Hedgehog 4, an infamous release targeted at Classic Sonic fans entirely.
