Team Sonic Racing’s release, which was originally slated sometime December of this year has been sadly delayed until May 21, 2019. A pretty sizeable delay, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The reasoning behind this decision was due to wanting to produce a great game by allowing the development team ample time to make that so. This was all confirmed earlier today via a tweet from the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account.
Hey guys! To make Team Sonic Racing the best game it can be, we’re giving the team extra time to work on it. Our new release date is May 21, 2019.
We know delays are no fun, but quality matters most. Thanks for your patience – we’ve got more to show you for TSR very soon!

Straight from the hedgehog’s mouth folks; hitting the race tracks with Sonic and friends will have to wait for now. I’m sure this may be disappointing for some, but Sumo Digital’s stance on the matter for wanting to ensure a high-quality title is completely understandable. As someone who has been anticipating Team Sonic Racing, I’d rather exercise patience then play a game that didn’t have enough time in the oven.
Team Sonic Racing will now be released on May 21, 2019, for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
