Sega aims to create a ‘Great Game’ by March 2026
Sega aims to create a “great game” by the fiscal year ending March 2026.
This is according to the company Latest Reportthat defines its medium-term plan.
It’s not clear exactly what this “super game” could be, but Sega has high hopes for current and past IPs, including Sonic.
The report includes a letter from Haruki Satomi, CEO of Sega, discussing the strategy behind this “super game” and the goal of attracting operators.
“One of the strategies to generate such successful titles is to create a ‘Super Game’ – a world wide title. We are currently developing such a game, and we are targeting release by the fiscal year ending March 2026,” he said.
“The ultimate goal in the ‘Super Game’ strategy is to create a game so revolutionary that it will attract far more active users than any of the group games so far. One of the keys to achieving that goal is if we can bring a large community together, not just the players, It also includes viewers who broadcast the game and viewers who watch their own videos.
“This kind of community expands and develops game content further, adds value to the game that developers never imagined, and unleashes a broader movement – which can then attract more users and significantly increase the game’s presence.”
The report also states that Sega aims to release a new free-to-play game “while continuing to work to enhance the playback of existing titles,” although it’s unclear if this is related to the “Super Game” in any way.
Moreover, the company realizes the importance of its previous games. “To effectively take advantage of our abundant intellectual property assets, including inactive IP addresses, we will further develop this intellectual property by means of refactoring, reworking, rebooting, etc., as well as offering it to subscription-based services and other forms of monetize across many channels,” the report reads.
The company’s “rich lineup” includes past franchises such as Shinobi, Out Run, Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio, and After Burner.
Elsewhere, there’s plenty of praise for the Sonic franchise’s growth, which has been attributed in part to the success of recent films.
The company also appreciates the success of Atlus and its RPGs, highlighting the latest release of Persona 5 Royal across multiple platforms.
Sonic Frontiers, the company’s next flagship, will launch on November 8th across all consoles and PCs.
