Update: Rumor: New ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ Kart Racer In Development

Update: Aaron Webber, who handles PR for Sega, confirmed that the rumored title is not in development. He had this to say:

Hi guys – saw rumors floating today about another SART game. Just wanted to confirm it’s not a thing!”

Sumo Digital, who previously handled Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, appear to be working on a new kart racing game.

This rumor comes to us via Resetera. According to user Dr. Carrol, they came across a leaked slide from a Sumo Digital presentation (see below). The image, if real, claims that an “unannounced Karting game” is in development with an “established global IP”.

Assuming this rumor is true, would you be excited about a new Sonic the Hedgehog kart racer? If the title isn’t using Sonic as its focal point, what other established IP could Sumo Digital be working into a kart racing game? Comment down below.
