Shit name, even sonic 2017 would have been better
the name probably actually means something

there are two sides or factions or teams or...forces.
or there will be some new powers, like colors, called forces.
or it's a physics based game
or there are flying horses

This is 100% Sonic and his friends in a gritty, war torn world acting as rebels to the Robotnik law of the land.

Edit: Or they're all fighter pilots.
