Sega of America's vice president of marketing Scott Steinberg has revealed that its next-gen Sonic the Hedgehog title and sequel Full Auto 2: Battlelines are on track for PS3 launch.
Dropping this titbit while speaking to GameDailyBiz about Sega's next-gen console strategy, Steinberg also said the PS3-exclusive beat-'em-up Virtua Fighter 5 will be out in March 2007.
Discussing next-gen development in general, he spoke about Sega "bringing our frontline brands as well as some new IP" to the new consoles, and promised we'll "be seeing some new IP that kind of rounds out our efforts on the two new platforms [PS3 and Wii]." Steinberg went on to add that Sega's Wii-exclusive Sonic Wild Fire will "probably" arrive in March 2007, and reaffirmed that Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz will launch alongside Nintendo's new console.
"...we continue to support [Xbox 360]," Steinberg additionally stated, mentioning Chromehounds and the Sonic Next Gen game which is also being developed for PS3.
But he refused to confirm whether Full Auto 2: Battlelines would eventually release for 360 too."Top line, Sega is supporting all three platforms," Steinberg said. "...we have lots of plans to be players on all three [consoles].
We're not necessarily picking one or the other; we have the capacity and scale to support all three."
