Nothing to do with finding a secure gameplay for Sonic. They are either incompetent or doesn't give a shit for Sonic other than make him being remembered out of something.
Sonic Mania wasn't a just sucess "because". Sonic Team never cared for trying to replicate what they did with older titles. They spend ages failing and failing again, trying to thrown whatever the crap on the series in the hopes it sticks. The results are a bunch of failed ideas and a fragmented fanbase.
Frankly I dunno why Sega keeps Sonic Team there. Its a big waste of money. They could do something similar to Sonic Mania or other so death IPs, by allowing more experienced devs/fans to trying making their games. They aways were very tame about fanmade projects, different from Nintendo.
Sonic Mania is the path, they should do the same as Nintendo did with Super Mario Worlds ...a Sonic with 2.5 D world with updated graphics.
3D they need to give the IP to new people , it has been a lot of tries ans only Sonic Adbventures gave some hope.
2.5D is the future of Sonic
