Here is what Sonic 4 Brand Manager Ken Balough wrote:
"SoA and SoE are both giving feedback and input on Episode II. Episode I did very well for SEGA commercially, and thanks to everyone's support, we definitely have a lot of traction going into Episode II,"
"This usually means better budgets, etc. That said – I see a lot of really great ideas going into the next installment."
"I certainly cannot deny there were some elements that could have been done better – and I could say that about most games I've worked on," he added elsewhere in the thread, addressing fan criticisms of Episode 1.
"That's why Episode II gives us that opportunity to address them (or as much as possible)."
Regarding the release window for the game Balough said, "You definitely wont have to wait years and years a la Duke Nukem Forever."
