This afternoon, Aaron Webber told fans via his personal Twitter account that any high hopes for a successor to the Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing franchised won’t be realized from a leak Monday night of upcoming projects from SUMO Digital.
Hi guys – saw rumors floating today about another SART game. Just wanted to confirm it’s not a thing!

The clarification came after a series of internal presentation slides from SUMO were leaked via the website ResetEra. One of those slides explained that an “unannounced karting game” featuring an “established global IP” was soon to come from the development house.
The last title in the ASR franchise, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, was released in 2012.
With that, the community’s eyes again will focus on the SXSW Sonic panel in Austin, Texas, for any official guidance. TSSZ’s Noah Copeland will be there, and our team will bring you live coverage of the panel on Friday, March 16th.
