It looks as though Classic Sonic will be taking a page from Nintendo’s Link by remaining silent. Sega of America’s Assistant Community Manager, Aaron Webber, verified that Classic Sonic will not have a voice in the upcoming Sonic Generations. He noted that this choice was made to appeal to retro fans.
It’s a big deal for some because Classic Sonic never really spoke in the old games. Save for Jaleel White, who voiced our blue hero in the old Sonic Cartoons, it’s generally taboo to have Classic Sonic speaking.”

Are you excited that Classic Sonic will remain silent, or were you hoping Jaleel White would come out of hiding to voice him?
