Yeah place me firmly in the camp that thinks Stealth worked on Sonic Mania Plus and there was no fallout for his previous actions that would have resulted in his removal from the project i.e. him and Sega are more than likely still on amicable terms and he's still part of Team Mania. My best guess is that he's doing his own thing now because quite simply the game's done.

Also on a somewhat related note, anyone have a link to his comments on the DRM situation? Honestly had no idea he was vehemently against it and seems to have spoken so.

The comments you're asking about were deleted. They were posted on Steam.

My previous comment wasn't suggesting that he was never involved, just that he potentially ended his involvement early. The game could be done as you theorize, but the lack of activity from other team members yet and the fact that Sega hasn't shown a single screenshot yet is interesting.

Ah okay - yeah I catch your drift now. I really respect Stealth and hold him in high regard so I do hope everything is cool with him and Sega. There is something mysterious about this so hopefully here at Retro we can solve what's going on. I'm quite confident the game might be done but yeah they would have shown off the game by now via a trailer or screens if the game was close on the horizon.

What if not the game, but just his share of the job is done, at least for now? He could have some spare time for his own projects while the team does some other things. I know this may sound weird since he's been part of the core team, but, if all that remains is something he's not in charg of, he could still leading the project while using his programming skills for his own purposes. Just saying.

Stealth still talks to the other Mania Team members on Twitter and he's taken a picture of himself with the group (albeit he's the one taking the picture). That wouldn't make sense if he was in serious trouble.

A lot of Mania contributors (Brad, Hunter, Midio) have posted that they're looking for work, so I think it's simply safe to say Mania Plus is wrapping up.

Yeah, that's true. They've said on twitter they're looking for work.

I'd imagine Mania Plus wouldn't have taken as long as the original did to develop (about a year or so). Perhaps MP has been in development for about half that time (about six months).

Hopefully we won't have to wait too long until MP releases.

If mania plus is nearly done, then i wonder why hasn't Sega mentioned a release date? (or at least a smaller release window)

Why doesn't Sega hire the Mania team to bring the remastered games to new platforms, especially as 2D games seem to be a big seller on Switch. They could bring CD, 1 & 2 over with extended 2P options and Knuckles in CD. Or they could have the remaster other Sonic games.

Sega is getting M2 to bring Sonic to Switch. M2 do great work, but it seems a waste of their efforts, when the Mania team could do so much more with Retro engine.

Not to beat a dead horse either, but 3 still needs a remaster. Have Tee Lopes write new music to replace the problematic tracks if they really need to.

I would looove a new Sonic Jam-esque collection with the Taxman remasters of 1-3 and CD. Throw some "definitive" versions of Spinball, 3D Blast and Chaotix in there and I think you'd have a pretty appealing package, what something like Mega Collection should have been.

So apparently Mania Plus was updated on PS4 (by accident?). Hopefully the Retro mods will consider making a spoiler free thread like last time. :)

It seems the patch went out to some PS4 users. There are leaks everywhere. There are some big changes here, spoilerly stuff and glitch fixes. I'm not linking the info/pics, but some people are streaming it on Twitch...

Someone fucked up and put Mania Plus content in the patch.
