New Sonic The Hedgehog Game

Yesterday, SEGA announced a brand new Sonic the Hedgehog game coming to PlayStation 5 and PS4 next year, but then stopped short of giving it an official name. Fans initially speculated Sonic Zap could be the title before a more devious bunch took a look through the teaser trailer's innards and discovered references to a Sonic Rangers. It's this name that appears to be what SEGA will be using when the game eventually rolls around, further solidified by the fact that Eurogamer received a press release containing that very title.

As reported by the site, it read: "Announcing new console experiences, Sonic Colors: Ultimate and Sonic Rangers, further details on Netflix's Sonic Prime, mobile news, musical events and much more!" Eurogamer was then told this morning that the press release in question is outdated and wasn't meant to be shared. However, we definitely think the cat has been let out of the bag here — Sonic Rangers is almost certainly the official name of the game, and a reveal is just being held back for a later news beat.

Besides that, there's very little we actually know about this new Sonic the Hedgehog title. It's assumed to be a 3D platformer, but not even that's set in stone just yet. What sort of game do you hope it is? Post your theories in the comments below.
