We’re Ecstatic to Announce That Sega Hardlight Studio is Now Developing a Sonic Mobile Game – This Exciting News Has Been Officially Confirmed!


A new Sonic mobile game is being developed by the UK-based Hardlight team. The studio is looking for a lead artist to assist in “creating, developing, and maintaining the game’s aesthetic style and visual quality,” according to a job posting.

According to the job posting, “Sega Hardlight is looking for a Lead Artist that can lead both the art and the art team on a new, innovative, and ambitious narrative-driven platform game.” “You might be an experienced leader in the arts or environment who wants to advance in your profession, or you might be a senior artist. You will be the star of one of our upcoming titles as a Lead Artist.

Through efficient communication, collaboration, careful planning, and active mentoring, you will contribute to the artistic vision and the internal art team’s production of high-quality work.”

According to the job description, the chosen candidate will oversee the art team, create environmental game assets, and collaborate closely with the game director. Since Sonic’s visual aesthetic is already somewhat established, the surrounding world will be the main focus. Five years of professional experience are required, with knowledge of Unity being a distinct benefit.

A vehicle salary service, health and dental benefits, cheap gym memberships, and even free Sega games on Steam are all said to be perks of the job at Hardlight. Hardlight undoubtedly possesses a wealth of experience from their work on Sonic mobile games. Previous titles include the platformers Sonic Jump and Sonic Jump Fever, the endless runner Sonic Dash, Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom, Sonic Forces: Speed Battle, and the racing Sonic Racing for Apple Arcade.

This September at EGX 2022 in London, Sonic fans will get their first good glimpse at Sonic Frontiers. This week, Sega made the statement to reassure doubters that the first open-world Sonic game will live up to their hopes.

Sega founded the British video game studio Hardlight, which is situated in Leamington Spa, England. Its name is stylized as HARDlight. It was unveiled in January 2012 and has since grown to become one of Sega Europe’s five studios. It focuses on mobile games for smartphones.

Chris Southall, a former employee of Sega, founded Hardlight, which at first focused on research and development for portable gaming consoles before being requested by Sega to help expand mobile game production outside of Japan. Since then, Hardlight has created several mobile games for the Crazy Taxi and Sonic the Hedgehog gaming franchises. 2019 saw a closer integration of Hardlight with parent company Sega Europe. Sonic Dash has been downloaded millions of times, making Hardlight’s games quite popular.

With its headquarters in Shinagawa, Tokyo, Sega Corporation[a] is a worldwide Japanese video game and entertainment corporation. Sega of America and Sega Europe, its international divisions, have their respective headquarters in Irvine, California, and London. Since 2020, Sega Games, its subsidiary for creating both arcade and home video games, has been in its current form; before that, the two had been independent companies named Sega Games and Sega Interactive Co., Ltd. Sega is a division of Sega Sammy Holdings, which is a division of Sega Group Corporation. Sega also created video gaming systems from 1983 to 2001.
