Can I just posit something for a second here? I always genuinely suspected that Boom was a sort of "Schrodinger's Reboot". I think they may have been ready and willing to reboot the entire franchise and replace modern Sonic with Boom Sonic, BUT it all depended on whether or not the Boom media was as successful as they'd hoped it would be. So they told people it wouldn't replace modern Sonic to assuage fears, but I had this feeling that they planned to just produce more and more content if it turned out to be profitable for them. Not saying I think Sonic Team are lying snakes or whatever, but I just always had the suspicion that Sonic Team wouldn't have invested in Boom unless they were ready to capitalize on its potential success. I mean it makes sense when you think about it, right? Of course they said they wouldn't replace modern Sonic, but they also knew that Boom Sonic wasn't super well received. But if Boom was mega successful, why wouldn't they run with it?
