IGN has just reported that Christian Weston Chandler has been approached by SEGA to lead the next Sonic the Hedgehog game in development.
The fan artist is well-known in the Sonic community for his infamous webcomic, Sonichu. It stars his own original character of the same name.
However, some Sonic fans are now furious.
"This project needs to stop now," one anonymous Sonic fan stated to an IGN reporter. "Chris is why the world is imperfect and fllawed. Don't let him help make a Sonic game."
Yet another fan reportedly said that the game will be worse than 2006's Sonic the Hedgehog.
The game is scheduled to be released on Christmas 2019.
