Joke: it's just the racing game they already teased

Woke: Sonic Mania 2 baybee

Bespoke: oh my god Sonic Team finally got their shit together and they're making the perfect 3D Sonic game which they're gonna announce at E3!!

They're announcing a new game? If only there was some kind of upcoming event where they could get a lot of attention by announcing a game and potentially have demos on some kind of show floor? But I doubt that's likely, I haven't heard of anything of the sort. /s

(sorry couldn't help myself :P)

Perhaps I’m missing something? Releasing the next animated short sonic mania adventures 3 doesn’t scream new game to me?
This is just a GDPR privacy thing no?

Wow, I didn't even notice that in the original tweet. Aaron Webber is so on-point it's scary.

Probably just Sonic Racing though. Hasn't been "officially revealed" yet (though we all know what it is, lol).

The image says "As part of our ongoing effort to prepare for our new game announcement[...]"

In case people can't read what it says:
As part of our ongoing efforts to prepare for our new game announcement, as well as release Sonic Mania Adventures Part 3 this month
They teased a Sonic racing game a while ago, so looks like that'll be announced before/during E3.

It's Sonic social account stuff, and not even very overt one at that. Read very carefully, text mentions a game announcement straight.

That said, yeah, it's the racing game. Staying cautiously pessimistic for now.

It's likely the racing game. I really hope they work out a way to start doing the Mario & Sonic games again. The Switch could really use something like that.

I don't understand why they string their announcements along for so long. It's a totally terrible way to announce anything and they've been doing it with Sonic for years now and they don't seem to have learned a darn thing.

"What if we don't show anything of the Racing game we semi-announced for another quarter of a year?!"

Probably the racing game since they didn't actually show any conclusive info so far. They didn't even revealed the name of the game.

The racing game by sumo is going to be better than any 3d sonic thing, so im super excited. Oh my god, what if it used the character designs from mania. Please reboot sonic like that, throw xenomorph sonic into the garbage.

Nah old Sonic is outdated and poorly designed. DremCast Sonic was the best. Modern Sonic is ugly.

Aaron/RubyEclipse (who's behind the Sonic Twitter account) also said this in the last Sonic stream:

A lot of you have been waiting for news and information, and you're very curious about what that title was that we teased back at South by Southwest, and at least in the near future, you might be hearing some more news and information about that. So hey, that's coming up. Get ready. It's on the horizon.
So yeah, 99.9% this is the reveal of the new Sonic racing game from Sumo Digital. Doubt anything Mania related is coming given Plus isn't in stores yet. It's the racing game.

I'll never understand the hate for Shadow. His game was utter dogshit, but I'll always love his character.
"Ow the edge" jokes aside, I still have a soft spot for the character too. I really like his characterization in Adventure 2, in any case.

I'm actually looking forward to the new racing game. Sonic R is a major guilty pleasure for me, and another game like that sounds fun as hell. All my love is going to Mania Plus, though.

An all Sonic racing game could be cool, if it is a true Sonic R followup and not a kart game reskinned.

Most characters on foot, different character abilities, etc.
