Sega is discontinuing several classic Sonic games in May ahead of Sonic Origins release

Prior to the release of Sonic Origins on June 23, 2022, Sega will remove currently available digital versions of each game included in the collection, which includes the original Sonic the Hedgehog. This removal is coming much earlier than the new version, so you’d better buy them now if you want.

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 deleting the current digital versions of each game.
