Episodic content is a curse – just ask fans of Half-Life. Sadly it looks as though SEGA’s not going to be the ones to break that curse, announcing that it has no plans to continue its Sonic the Hedgehog 4 series beyond the upcoming Episode 2.

Sonic Team producer Takashi Iizuka broke the depressing news, telling Digital Spy that while the team is “looking forward to hearing the feedback” to Episode 2, it is “not planning to release another episode”.

Don’t get too upset — you should be used to this by now.
