Earlier this month, one of two anticipated new Sonic the Hedgehog games came out. Sonic Mania was a return to the 2D platforming style the franchise was known for in the 90s and the new game came out to critical acclaim. The other new upcoming game is Sonic Forces, a continuation of the 3D platforming style the series adapted in the late 90s and through the 2000s. All we have known up to this point is that Sonic Forces was slated for a holiday release, but today (August 31) we were finally given an official release date.
