Sonic frontiers has sold more than 2.5 million copies since its launch on November 6.
An official tweet from Sega (below) revealed the 2.5 million figure, which presumably takes into account units sold globally across PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, and PC platforms where the title is available.
Sega unveiled the 2023 roadmap for Sonic Frontiers earlier in November, showing that the open world action game would receive three updates throughout the year. These will bring new challenge modes, a photo mode, a new playable character, and fresh story content to the fast-paced adventure title.

Sonic Frontiers’ launch didn’t go entirely without issues, however, as the game suffered from significant pop-in issues when it was released.
Regardless, the positive fan reaction to Sonic’s move to an open world format was enough to make the title a serious contender for the fan voted Player’s Voice category at The Game Awards 2022.
In our review, IGN gave the game a 7/10, stating that “Sonic Frontiers is a delightfully weird and experimental evolution of the Sonic games so many of us grew up with”.
