Sonic Mania was just hit with a two-week delay on PC

Sonic Mania’s animated intro is a thing of beauty

Unfortunately, it turns out that PC gamers looking to play the game will have to wait a little while longer than console users.

Sega confirmed that the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions are still on track for Tuesday. Sega made a decision to delay this release in order to better optimize the game. The Collector's Edition will be shipping on August 15th.

As part of an apology and an appreciation of understanding by the fans, those who have pre-ordered Sonic Mania or own the Collector's Edition can get a free copy of Sonic the Hedgehog on Steam. The reason given is that the PC version needs a bit more optimization, which is a common reason given whenever a game is delayed. Its production is schedule to celebrate the franchise's 25th anniversary (the game will actually come a year late for that, to be precise).

More news: It looks like Multiplayer Might Finally Come to No Man's Sky

In a tweet a letter from the team explains why they want to spend some extra time polishing the PC version. If Sega ever decides to make a new Sonic cartoon, it would be wise for them to go with a style like this.

New in this Sonic title is the addition of a new movement skill called the "drop dash" that allows players to instantly accelerate upon landing on surfaces. Everything about it is fantastic.

You're not dreaming. Since the 90's, Sonic has advanced from the 2D world into 3D, and has crossed multiple platforms along the way.
