Simpsons Hit And Run remake is finally on the horizon

Simpsons Hit And Run remake is finally on the horizon

The game's 20th anniversary is this year.

The Simpsons Hit & Run is one of the most in-demand remakes and still, now in 2023, there's not even the slightest whisper on the wind from any formal developers.

"I would love to see a remastered version of [The Simpsons Hit & Run], I would," said The Simpsons producer Matt Selman. "It's a complicated corporate octopus to try to make that happen." Fortunately that hasn't stopped the fantastic fan projects that we've seen over the years, like YouTuber reubs who recreated the entire game in less than a week in Unreal Engine 5. Or, modder El Gato Del Tejado who painstakingly redrew the game's cutscenes in Matt Groening’s original art style, or the Futurama mod for Hit & Run from Donut Team.

Check out this cursed mod for God of War that swaps Kratos and Atreus for Homer and Bart below:

At the time of writing, the petition on has nearly 30,000 signatures from fans all over the world that would love to see this cherished game get some sorely required TLC. In the meantime, transport yourselves back to those after-school afternoons where we'd wreak havoc on Springfield, turning the town upside down to find the Itchy & Scratchy cards.

The Twitter account Out of Context 20th Century Fox spotted that the soundtrack has been uploaded to Apple Music and Spotify. In fact, the soundtrack has been on the latter streaming service since about September 2022, but no one had shouted it from the rooftops yet.

Does this suggest that a remake or remaster is in the works? As someone says in the replies to this Tweet, "licensing is a b*tch," and it's likely to be in a celebration of the game's 20th anniversary this year. If there were formal efforts to remaster or remake Hit & Run, those fan projects would have been hit with a hefty DMCA takedown notice.
