Sonic CD Was A Bold Vision Of What Sonic Could Be - GameSpot

Story Highlights:

Two of Sonic's primary development staff, Yuji Naka and Hirokazu Yasuhara, joined future PlayStation console architect Mark Cerny at Sega Technical Institute with a few other Japanese staff in the US to create Sonic the Hedgehog 2--a very unusual America/Japan co-production for its time.

Meanwhile, other original Sonic Team members stayed back home in Japan to plan a Sonic game for the fledgling Mega-CD (Sega CD in western markets) add-on.

In many ways--and quite fittingly, given its time-travel theme--Sonic CD feels like the start of a different evolutionary path the Sonic series could have taken into the future, but didn't.
