^ There bitches to a bitch character. Hell there was no werehog statue either. Or Tikal or E-102. And let's not get into the fact that they could have made classic variants for 5 other characters in the game. Decisions were made

Ding ding ding, we have a winner. THIS is what I was referring to - people here are throwing entirely new zones around when this has never ever been done before. Realistically the absolute best you could get would be some new missions - you are not going to get new levels, which is what I'd count as actual substantial DLC.
The reason we believe that this game might receive new zones is due to the nature of the game. Generations is a celebration of Sonic's history, and of course they couldn't cover everything, so they may go back and add new stuff. The game leaves itself open for the possibility.
And even if we don't get new levels entirely I think there's a decent chance we might get new acts. Generations was odd since unlike Unleashed which had about 3 unique acts per character (small as they were) and Colors which had 6 acts per level (Probably about 2 or 3 unique sets of level geometry though, just reused in different way), Generations has 2 acts and a bunch of cheesy little challenge missions that reuse the same geometry. They've done things to make these challenges fresh, but a full act and 5 missions based off that same act is kind of overkill, any more and it just wouldn't be worth it.
And while new levels has never been done before the only other realistic example we have is Sonic Unleashed. 06 doesn't count, it's DLC was handled differently due to the fact that the game came out when DLC was still a new concept and the standard HDs would not have worked well with entirely new levels (Unleashed raped my 20GB HD).
