The Simpsons: Hit and Run lead developer is totally down for a remake. So, why hasn't this remake happened already?

Developed by Radical Entertainment in 2003, The Simpsons: Hit and Run became an instant cult classic. Considered to be a spiritual successor to 2001s Road Rage, Hit and Run offered a more family-friendly alternative to the goliath that was Grand Theft Auto.

However, it’s been 20 years since the release of Hit and Run, and not only is a sequel nowhere to be seen but there has also been no sign of a remake or remaster. This is despite the fact that the game remains to be one of the most fan-requested remasters.

Some fans have taken matters into their own hands to create their very own remake of The Simpsons: Hit and Run. To be fair, this fan remake is quite stunning. Sadly, as good as that fan's attempts were, it’s the closest we’ve had to a proper remake over the last two decades.

That being said, in an interview with GamesRadar, the lead game designer of The Simpsons: Hit and Run, Joe McGinn has said that he’d love to see a remake of this beloved classic.

Hit and Run is still the highest-rated Simpsons game ever made, according to Metacritic,” McGinn told GamesRadar. “I am very surprised and pleased that people still love the game.

He continued: “I gave a talk to some high school kids about my computer science career the other day, and I was amazed that some of them had played Hit and Run. They weren't even born when it came out!”

What’s more, to make his feelings abundantly clear, would Joe McGinn like to see a remake of The Simpsons: Hit and Run? He exclaimed: “I would love to see it.”

At the time of writing Activision and 20th Century Television own the rights to The Simpsons: Hit and Run. So please powers that be, give us that remake or at the very least a remaster. We’ve been waiting long enough.
