True to his reputation, Sonic is currently heading, head down, towards the year 2023 with, at least, two projects under the elbow : a new film adaptation, presented during the Game Awards ceremony and expected in April 2023, as well as a new open-world game which is strongly inspired by the tree structure by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and which has earned it worldwide success.
After a quick stop during the Game Awards to come and confirm the regular hallway noises about him, the SEGA mascot left just as quickly without taking the time to reveal more to us. Right now, a new video clip, some visuals, and a release window set for Q4 2023 are the few things we can get our teeth into.. However, a recent find indicates a potential release date!
We owe the rumor of the day to the PlayStation Game Size site: very often reliable in terms of items collected in PlayStation databases, the site would have got its hands on more details about the release of Sonic: Frontiers, scheduled for the end of 2023. As always, in this type of situation, information of this caliber should be taken with a grain of salt pending any form of official confirmation from SEGA.
In the meantime, here’s what we learn there! If this is just a potential, and provisional, release date for the title but the database reports a release in mid-November, around November 15. Information that gains credibility when it is linked to two very specific details : correspondence with the calendar and the latest video game releases from the SEGA mascot.
🚨 According To Playstation Database, Sonic Frontiers Coming November 15th 2023
🟨 Maybe it’s Just Place-Holder!

Indeed, the date of November 15, 2023 corresponds to a Tuesday, the day on which the releases are announced, and a handful of games from the universe of Sonic have often been released in these waters, like Sonic Unleashed (28/11/2008), Sonic colors (12/11/2010), Sonic Generations (04/11/2011) and Sonic forces (07/11/2017). These two elements are, of course, interesting because they have the merit of underlining a certain trend on the side of SEGA, but must be confirmed before being taken at face value.
While waiting for a formalization in due form, you can already learn about the title and the recent information around the universe of Sonic thanks to This article. Finally, let’s remember that Sonic Frontiers is expected on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and Switch.
