In August last year, Hit & Run was reimagined as the cartoon series Futurama using a mod.

The demo was described as a “total conversion mod for The Simpsons: Hit & Run” which aimed to replicate the gameplay of Hit & Run in Futurama‘s world. The recreation featured 3D models build from the ground up like “it was an intended expansion pack for the game.”

A dedicated fan also last year revealed that they were building an open-world version of Hit & Run, which would also include online multiplayer, better vehicle physics and improved graphics.

Reflecting on the cult classic last year, NME described Hit & Run as a “brilliant window into the noughties”.

“If the internet is to be believed, Hit & Run’s cultural significance sits somewhere between BTS and the Shroud of Turin – and subsequently, any hint of criticism is blasphemous,” writer Andy Brown explained.

In 2021, The Simpsons co-showrunner Matt Selman admitted that he would love to see a remastered version of the Hit & Run.

Talking to IGN, Selman shared his desire for an updated version of the game but admitted “it’s a complicated corporate octopus to try to make that happen”.
