A fellow Reddit User Posted some info about the next Sonic Games for "Mid-2019" yesterday. It was told on Reddit that he's "friend's dad works at SEGA Of Europe."
This post also got removed earlier this morning, so to weither this is real or not, it's still a mystery.
Here are the info from the removed post:
"Hi there. Just would like to share some info to you guys about the 2 next sonic games coming around Mid-2019. My friend's dad works at an office at SEGA Of Europe, and I asked him some stuff on what they are planning on doing for Sonic's career in the future, and gosh is it exciting.
First off, yes, we are getting 2 new games by 2019. The first one is called "Sonic Mania 2" and the other is, no joke, called "Sonic Adventure: Origins," or simply titled "Sonic Origins."
Christian Whitehead will start to work on Mania 2 in about 2 months, and Tee Lopes will be working on the Music again. In short, the exact same team that was working on Mania 1 will be working on Mania 2 for the next 1/2 years before release.
For Sonic Adventure: Origins, the Level Designers will be as followed (for now): Masayuki Inoue, Shoko Kamiya, Takahiro Ono, and Yoshinobu Uba, while Takashi Iizuka will be the Lead Level Designer and in charge of the general Level Designing in the game.
The story is still mostly unknown. The writing is still in progress, but for now, the story will definitly have a darker toned story, like SA2 and Forces.
For the playable characters, there will be Sonic, Shadow, Tails, Knuckles, and Classic Sonic (ugh).
I seriously don't know why they would put Classic Sonic in the game, but it's SEGA's marketing choices, I guess.
Sonic and Shadow will have a mix between Adventure-Styled and Modern-Era Styled levels. So to say, Linear & Open...in a way. (Think Sonic Heroes level design) At first, you won't have access to the Boost. The Boost will be introduced in the 3rd Stage for Sonic, and the second stage for Shadow.. Questionable choices, I guess.
Sonic (nor Shadow) won't have the drift at all in this game. However, Sonic & Shadow will have the Light Speed Dash and Spin Dash again. Shadow's Enemy Chain attack from Forces makes a return here as well, and Sonic's returning Tornado Spin Attack from Heroes also makes a return. Sonic will have 8 Stages, and Shadow will have 7 stages.
Tails will be the same as SA1. He will be racing againts Sonic in some stages. That's it for now. He will have only about 6 Stages though.
Knuckles is also the same as SA1's Knuckles gameplay. All of the moves from SA1 returns, however, instead of searching for 3 Emeralds in each stage, he has to find a certain object given on-screen. His first stage will only require him to find 2 objects within 10 Minutes, while the last few stages will require over 5 for each stage. Unfortuantly, like SA2, he will only be able to detect one object at a time. Knuckles will either have 6 or 7 stages, depending on the final decision, of course.
Classic Sonic's stages will be like...Forces' stages. Geez. The only 1 level designer for Classic Sonic's stages will be Shoko Kamiya, however. SEGA will also be asking Christian Whitehead to give them some level designing tips for Classic Sonic here and there. The Drop Dash is returning as well. Classic Sonic will have 6 Stages.
For the music, Crush 40 will be returning. YAY.
And more good news? The Chao Garden is returning, but SEGA realised that not everybody was a fan of the Chao Garden back in SA1 & SA2, so they are making it a Downloadable DLC. No clue on what it will cost yet though.
Anymore DLC, you ask? No other DLC got announced yet, sorry.
Oh yea, and before you ask, my friend's dad told me that Mania 2 & Adventure: Origins will be connected (story wise) just like Mania 1 and Forces.
For the Consoles, Mania 2 will be coming to PS4, XBOX ONE, Nintendo Switch, & PC, and will be using the Retro Engine.
And Sonic Origins will be coming to the same platforms, however, once again, the Switch will be running at a lower resolution and fps, like Forces. It will be using the Hedgehog Engine 2."
Now take this info with a grain of salt. If this is true, then some Sonic the Hedgehog fans might be in for some big suprises over the next couple of years.
Women no longer allowed to drive after 8 pm A new law will go into affect January 2019 prohibiting women from driving after 8 pm in most states. These states to include Missouri and Illinois. This decision comes after several years of studying reports of women drivers and also on crimes against them after 8 pm. Studies show that women are at greater risk in the darker hours. So if your a women and find yourself having to drive at night you will need to find a ride from a male or maybe call uber.

Giant Squid Washes Ashore on Lake Michigan Michigan DNR were called to Leland to the report of a giant squid which had washed ashore. Michigan DNR Marine Biologist Dr. Debra Polowotski arrived at Good Harbor Bay and confirmed the 21 foot-long giant squid to be a very rare fresh-water species of genus Architeuthis. “We thought they were already in Lake Erie, we had no idea they were in Lake Michigan. This is first time there’s been an actual specimen recovered, so this is very exciting”, she said. It is believed that a few of the squid escaped from the Cleveland Sea World complex during the great Northeast blackout of 2003 when they were very young, and somehow made it into Lake Erie. According to Dr. Polowotski, the squid were kept contained in Lake Erie, as the Detroit River is too narrow and shallow for the squid to swim upstream. “They are intimidated by closed-in spaces. They need a lot of room. You have to remember that this is a very big animal”, she said. Dr. Polotwotski also confirmed that the squid is a female and further examination of the corpse indicated that it had recently laid eggs. “Hopefully the walleye can keep the tiny-giant squid population under control, else there is some cause for concern”, said Dr. Polowotski. “Boaters and swimmers really need to exercise some caution”. The animal was discovered by Bob Ritchie and his sister Jill, both of Romeo. “We were just, you know, taking an evening walk along the beach, heading out to the sandbar when we stumbled across it”, said Bob. “We were singing, drinking whiskey out of the bottle, not thinking about tomorrow. But something like this really does make you stop and think”, he said. DNR officials removed the animal from the beach and took it to an undisclosed location for further study.
New Laws in VA to Ban Hiding "painted rocks" in Public Spaces A new law goes into effect September 1st 2017 that will essentially make it a misdemeanor to paint rocks. Even more severe, if you are caught hiding "painted rocks" in public spaces you can be charged with a felony and face hefty fines or even jail time. Lauren Painter, a spokesman for the Virginia Public Health Organization states, "Painting and hiding rocks in and around the country is becoming an epidemic. At first it is just once or twice a week. Before you know it, you are skipping meals and staying awake until early in the morning painting." A former "rocker", who wishes to remain anonymous, told reporters that for her it started out as "...fun family activity. After only about a month, I was forgetting to feed my kids, not sleeping, and hiding the "best rocks" from friends and family. State health officials warn VA residence to contact their local law enforcement immediately or call 800-ROCKHLP if they know someone who has lost control because of the new craze.l, especially if there are children involved
