Sega is removing several classic Sonic games ahead of Sonic Origin’s May release

Prior to the release of Sonic Origins on June 23, 2022, Sega will delist currently available digital versions of each game included in the collection, which includes the original Sonic the Hedgehog.

A total of four games will be removed from sale starting May 20: Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD. Sega specifically cited the release of Sonic Origins as the reason for the removal of current digital versions of each game.
