A little bummer announcement: Sonic Mania will miss its original Spring 2017 release. The retro 2D platformer that is both remixing old stages as well as new ones in the look and feel of the original Sonic games needed more time before it’s ready. This was announced over in the SXSW panel where publishers Sega also reveal the official name for Project Sonic 2017: Sonic Forces.
The delay is unfortunate, but they did reveal one new stage taken from Sonic & Knuckles: Flying Battery Zone.
Sonic Mania is set to release sometime this summer (June-September) on PC, PS4, Xbox One and the Switch.
