It Could Be Anything…But…

An active job posting Sega of America has on its website received a fair bit of attention when Segabits, Sonic Stadium and others picked up word of it from Gamerzines over the weekend.

The description is vague enough, complete with corporate-speak one would expect from any job posting.  But here’s the line that has caused so many alarm bells to ring in the days since discovery:

Wholly responsible for the project schedule, the budget, and the timely delivery of a high quality product based on a reimagining of one of Sega’s most beloved IP’s.

Sega has a treasure trove of IPs at its disposal, so this could be anything.  But given how its flagship property, Sonic the Hedgehog, has been tinkered with so much in recent years, it has led many to wonder if Sonic will undergo yet another of those “reimaginings.”  What do you think?  Will Sonic soon see another transformation, or do you think Sega is planning something else.  Tell us below in the comments.
