New-Gen GTA V Release Date May Have Scared Sonic Off

New-Gen GTA V Release Date May Have Scared Sonic Off

Back in July, Sega announced that the upcoming Sonic Boom games would be hitting the 3DS and Wii U on November 11 and 18, respectively. This morning, the Japanese company updated the release date of the Wii U version. Guess they don't want their hedgehog getting becoming a Grand Theft Auto casualty?

Both Sonic Boom games are coming out on November 11 now. What changed between the summer's initial release date announcement and this morning's update? Oh, just Rockstar Games telling the world that the long-awaited PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA V would be coming on November 18. Now, Sega would never say that new-gen GTA V is the reason for moving the Wii U release up a week. But it sure looks like they don't want to have to worry about people picking up a game other than Sonic Boom when it comes time to decide.


    3 days after CoD and on the day Halo comes out. Really any different?

      Halo is on XBox, which has never done well in Japan. I doubt they care about MS interference.

    Especially considering that GTA V isnt even hitting Wii U...

    I don't imagine that the Sonic crowd would be the same as the GTA one.

      If I had a PS4 or Xbox One, I'd be picking up both. But since I've only got a Wii U, it'll be Sonic Boom for me that week! One to play with the nephew... and on my own...
