Taxman Was Asked to Develop Sonic 4: Episode III With SEGA Studios Australia

A few days ago Ken Barlough revealed that Sonic 4 Episode III was cancelled. Now more information regarding the project has come to light. Taxman has revealed that he was asked to develop Sonic 4 Episode III with SEGA Studios Australia.

I’ve always assumed Sonic 4 Episode 3 fizzled out as things evolved with SOA, Sega Networks & F2P etc.

I guess it’s been long enough that it’s not relevant any more, but I was briefly asked if I would be interested in collaborating with Sega Studios Australia (Who did the Castle of Illusion remake) as a potential dev team to work on the third one. Sadly though, SSA were shut down, and Stealth and I worked on the Sonic 1 & 2 remasters in late 2012-2013.

Of course, you never know, Sonic Team could one day decide Ep3 should happen, but Ken pretty much confirms my personal thoughts.

What’s your thoughts on the matter? How do you think Sonic 4: Episode III would have turned out with Taxman helping develop the game? Let us know in the comments below!
