However, it turns out this was no ordinary thank you video, as Sonic PR Head Aaron Webber hinted that a secret message had been hidden somewhere within it. Naturally, fans quickly set to work uncovering the hidden message, which they managed to piece together as follows:
To you, all of you, thank you for making the past several years of Sonic so amazing.

It began in 2015
A glimmer of a flame
Growing with each success
Enduring every challenge
Within this, my last puzzle
Remember the words
Ignis aurum probat [Latin for ‘Fire tests gold’]
This next chapter belongs to you
Although the true meaning behind the message is still unclear, many fans believe it could be a hint about the next major title in the Sonic series. We will be sure to bring further updates as they come.
