SEGA has announced it will no longer sell select Sonic games digitally after May 20.
The company announced the move in a short press release today, without providing further color.
This means that standalone versions of Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD will no longer be available on digital storefronts after that date.
There are a couple of exceptions: Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2 will remain available via SEGA Ages on Nintendo Switch and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will still be playable via Sega Genesis on Nintendo Switch Online +.
Granted, you will be able to pick up all the games being delisted via the Sonic Origins compilation. It will run you $39.99/£32.99 on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
But, if you want to purchse the games individually, you have until May 20 to do so. On PC, you can buy ports of the games through Steam for $5 each. If you would rather play the spiffied up versions though, you will want to buy Sonic Origins when it releases on June 23.
