The return of Classic Sonic in Sonic Generations looks to be a one-time thing… for now. Sega of Europe Brand Manager David Corless has said that the publisher has “no plans” to bring back the fan-favorite.
“Do you know what? There are no plans, to be brutally honest, to bring Classic Sonic back,” said Corless, speaking to Sonic Stadium. “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.”
Sonic Generations is due November 1 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, and on November 22 for 3DS.
