It’s been some time since we’ve last heard about Team Sonic Racing, and it seems there’s a good reason for that now in hindsight. Sega is delaying the game well into 2019, quite a ways off from the game’s planned winter release date. The company did not cite a reason for the delay.

In Team Sonic Racing, you’ll team up with your favorite Sonic characters in hectic co-op races, using techniques and group strategy to slow down your enemies and get the advantage. Of course, there will be your standard single player and competitive multiplayer modes as well if teamwork isn’t your bag.

Team Sonic Racing is currently under development by Sumo Digital, the team who also brought us the Platinum Award winning Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. Team Sonic Racing’s predecessor was no slouch, so anticipation is high despite the delay.

Team Sonic Racing is now expected to launch on May 21 on Nintendo Switch.
