The Simpsons Hit And Run remaster/remake petition is still chugging along, now acquiring over 30,000 signatures.
It’s no secret that The Simpsons is as popular as ever. It’s available in its entirety on Disney+, sees constant re-runs on TV and is currently in its 35th season. Aside from being one of the best animated comedies on TV though, it’s also got an impressive array of video games, and none are better than The Simpsons Hit And Run.

It’s essentially Grand Theft Auto, but set in the world of The Simpsons, so what’s not to love? It’s even so beloved that fans have been campaigning for years to have it brought back to current-gen hardware.
Some have even taken the time to launch petitions, one of which is begging for a sequel to be developed, or at the very least a remake for current-gen platforms, like the Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and PC. That petition has since passed 30,000 signatures, and it’s still growing.
Plenty of self-made remakes and demos have been created for the game, showing off what a full-on revival could look like if it’s properly backed by a big publisher.
You don’t have to change the gameplay too much either, just expand the maps to cover more areas in Springfield, add in a few more playable characters, costumes and vehicles, and it’ll probably satisfy the majority of fans.
Hopefully, developers and publishers realise the potential The Simpsons still has for video games, especially after all the new developments and characters introduced during the recent seasons.
At the moment it’s looking like a pipe dream, but if enough people voice their desires, it could potentially become a reality.
