By Alan Ng - May 21, 2010

We have some disappointing news for Xbox 360 and PS3 owners now, as Sega has confirmed that the release date of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 has now been delayed until later on in the year.

As reported from VG247, the game was expected to release in the Summer on both the Playstation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace.

Episode 1 of the game is also due out on the Nintendo Wii and Sega posted the following statement for the delay of the game.

It turns out that they want to: “ensure overall high-quality throughout the game by continuing to tune, balance, and maintain the kind of polish that an important title like this demands”.

So there we have it. No Sonic until the end of the year. Let us know your thoughts on the delay. Surprised?
