According to the latest rumours, the mega-popular The Simpsons game Hit and Run could be getting a remastered treatment with fancy visuals and other improvements.

Fans of the planetary popular TV series The Simpsons have been craving for another The Simpsons: Hit and Run game for many years now. However, FOX, who own The Simpsons IP, have been silent on the matter and it seems that a new game will remain just a dream for many players.

Back in October 2019, producer Vlad Ceraldi said that the game could make a spectacular return on different platforms as a remake or remaster. He even admitted that Hit and Run revival has been discussed previously but not in a professional manner. 

"It’s come up before in discussions but not seriously, usually at the pub, just talking about the idea of some of the magic that was captured and the potential ability to recapture it in a new way with a different audience, with a different generation of devices," he explained.

Well, it looks like these discussions may have reached a professional level if the latest rumour from Reddit is true. The post, which includes the info has been quickly deleted but not before someone grabbed a screenshot . The rumour is mostly focused on some big AAA titles like Far Cry 6 and new Lara Croft game, but right at the end of the post, it states that "The Simpsons: Hit and Run Remaster is in the works".

Now, we suggest you take this with a hefty pinch of salt just like any other rumour, leak or unconfirmed info. We have not heard a word about The Simpsons game franchise ever since the 2007 title and it is quite possible that that will be the case for the foreseeable future as well.

That being said, even a slight hint of Hit and Run remaster would get us properly excited, so excuse us for starting the hype train based on a mere Reddit rumour. We want it that bad.
