On July 4, Steve Lycett began dropping hints on a new update for Sonic & All Stars Racing: Transformed. For PC users, the update was live and… ASRT was to get a new character, General Winter from Company of Heroes 2 from Relic Entertainment, a studio recently acquired by SEGA from the now-defunct THQ, following THQ’s bankruptcy,
Although later, some people have decided to complain, which has prompted S0L to announce that development on ASRT is still going ahead and that the character they got approval for a few months back is not General Winter and that the game will be reciving more DLC in the future.
At the Sonic Stadium Message Board (SSMB) and at SEGA’s forums, he said:
“no-one has said we’re done with the game. We’ve not forgot about the poll either. It’s not up to us who we add to the game, I’ve made this clear a number of times. […] I’ll leave you with one interesting tidbit. This isn’t the character I mentioned we’d got approval on either, that was definitely one of the poll topping ones.”
