Sega, the publisher behind franchises like Sonic the Hedgehog, Like a Dragon, Persona, etc., provided a small update on the development progress of the “Super Game”, which is expected to be ready in 2026. This ambitious project was announced for the first time in 2021 with little to no specific information on the scale, structure or appearance of the Sega IP.
One of Sega’s COOs, Mr. Shuji Utsumi, shared a few words about the state of “Supergames” in an annual report. Utsumi stated that the project is going well and is still aiming for a launch in 2026, when it has just entered the production phase. The director also added that the title will seek to attract “the entire gaming ecosystem,” including players, streamers and viewers.
Currently, the specific concept of what the “Supergame” will entail remains unclear. However, Sega is pumping a lot of resources into the project. When the game was first announced in 2021, the developer expressed consideration about spending huge amounts of money, over $800 million, on the development of the game. Will Sega continue to spend this money now or does the company plan to invest more capital in “Super Game” two years after its announcement? Furthermore, the developer is yet to mention the popular IP or character they plan to use for this community-driven online platform experience.
Mr. Utsumi seems to hint that “Super Game” has just moved into full production, so fans may have to wait a long time for more information on the game’s genre, gameplay, structure, and Sega-related IP. . If the release date doesn’t change, Sega will likely reveal the full project in 2025.
