It is the first Sonic the Hedgehog game to feature open-world gameplay and follows Sonic as he attempts to stop an ancient technology unleashed by Doctor Eggman. In addition to celebrating the series' upcoming 30th anniversary, Sonic Team also sought to define what a modern Sonic game should be and solidify the series' direction for the next decade. Sonic Team head and Sonic series producer Takashi Iizuka wanted the next Sonic game to inform future games, similar to how Sonic Adventure set a template that following games continued to emulate for 20 years. Development was underway by March 2019, and that month Sega opened a fan survey to help determine the series' "next steps". Morio Kishimoto, director of Sonic Colors , Lost World , and Forces, returns to direct Frontiers, while Sachiko Kawamura is producing.Ian Flynn, who wrote Sonic the Hedgehog comics published by Archie Comics and IDW Publishing and episodes of the Sonic Boom TV series, wrote the script. Sega unveiled a teaser trailer, featuring Sonic running through a forest, at the end of a 30th anniversary livestream on May 27, 2021.
