Sega is hosting a Sonic virtual event this week with a first look at upcoming projects

Celebrating the Blue Blur’s 30th

News is on the way for Sonic fans. Sega announced today that it will be hosting Sonic Central, a Sonic the Hedgehog streaming event, on Thursday, May 27.

The virtual event will air on May 27 at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET, on both the Sonic YouTube and Twitch channel. The stream will have a “first look” at upcoming projects, partnerships, and events to celebrate Sonic’s 30th anniversary.

There’s no more indication on whether this will be game-related or if there will be more shown about other projects, but I imagine for Sonic fans, any and all news is good news. 

This does mean Thursday is getting packed though, with both a Horizon Forbidden West State of Play and a Dying Light 2 stream planned for May 27. E3 2021 still isn’t set to start for a few more weeks, but it seems like the summer of gaming news is already getting off to a running start.
