Details about Sega’s enigmatic “Super Game” project, scheduled for release in 2026, are revealed.
What might that be?

Co-Chief Operating Officer Shuji Utsumi has finally provided a quick update on Sega’s intriguing ‘Super Game’ concept, which was first revealed back in 2021.

The Super Game project will involve multiple “triple-A titles that cross over Sega’s comprehensive range of technologies,” according to Utsumi, who also stated that they will “go beyond the traditional framework of games.” Although the exact nature of the project is still unknown, we do know that it won’t be a single upcoming game. through VGC

Utsumi was able to provide an update on the first game in Sega’s Super Game project in a recently released yearly report. Although the nature of this is still unknown, Utsumi said the company is “making steady headway in development of the ‘Super Game’ that we are seeking to create in the medium to long term”. He continued: “As the name implies, a ‘Super Game’ involves the concept of a game that stands head and shoulders above normal games.”

Lastly, Utsumi states that Sega intends to “create a game that builds a whole worldview involving the entire gaming ecosystem, including not only players but also streamers who stream the game and their viewers” .

Although Yukio Sugino, the president of Sega, states that the Super Game project won’t be completed until the “fiscal year ending March 2026,” we can speculate as to what form it will eventually take.

When Utsumi talks about an ecosystem with watchers and streamers, it makes me think of an online-focused experience, maybe with a live-service component. You may not find it instantly exciting, given that Sega recently shelved Hyenas, an extraction shooting game that was supposedly their biggest budget title ever.

We also don’t know if the game will be entirely original or use already-existing Sega intellectual property, such as Like a Dragon, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Phantasy Star. March 2026 is still a long way off, so there will be plenty of time for speculation when more information is hopefully made public soon.
