What might come as a disappointment to some, SEGA has confirmed that Sonic Mania for the PC has been delayed until the end of the month.
The news comes only four days before the game’s release but only affects the PC release of the game. The PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions will release as planned on the 15th of August.
Talking during a live stream earlier today, SEGA has confirmed the reason behind the delay is due to wanting to make sure the game is at the same quality of the other platforms.
“We are not going to put out a game that is not the best it can be,” he added. “And we’re going to maintain that level of quality and consistency and dedication to that quality. It is so important to us.”
As a way of saying sorry to fans that have already pre-ordered the PC version, players will get a free copy of the original Sonic the Hedgehog for Steam. The Collectors Edition will still ship out as normal but the main game will not unlock until the new release date. The same has been extended to anyone who pre-order up until the 15th of August.
The new release date for the PC version of Sonic Mania has been set as the 29th of August, another two weeks. Until that time, why not check out the fantastic opening animation
