Dimps or Sonic Team? Actually, “a Bit of Both”
Enough of a commotion has developed stemming from Tuesday’s news of Dimps listed as a primary developer for Sonic 4 that a Sega representative has gone on the record about it.
Sega of America Community Manager RubyEclipse made a statement Thursday on the official Sega forums, and clarified that while Dimps is principally working on the next Sonic, the Sonic Team is also involved:
So, is it just Dimps? Just Sonic Team? The answer is a bit of both:
Yes, Dimps is working on the game. But there’s actually more to it than just that: at the same time, we also have members of Sonic Team, including the original senior level designer from Sonic 3 & Knuckles on the SEGA Genesis working alongside them. It is most definitely a partnership, and the result of this teamwork is something many of us are excited for.
At this point, there may be more important things for Sega and fans to worry about than who’s developing the game. We will continue to keep tabs for you.
