Initially released in September 2003, The Simpsons: Hit & Run has been a fan-favourite among many players in the gaming community. A survey conducted by GAME on 20th May 2021 suggests that The Simpsons: Hit & Run is the most demanded remaster by players, with a score of 44%. In comparison, the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas remaster was only at 24%. While there is no confirmation from Radical Entertainment about the remastered version, the source code for the game has supposedly been leaked online beforehand.
The Simpsons: Hit & Run is a beloved licensed game that fanatics of the franchise have been demanding a remaster for, for years now. The leaked data supposedly contains documents about the game’s development and marketing by Radical Entertainment, along with the source code for the actual game. Some players have even been able to create playable copies of the game using the leaked source code.
The leaked source code was first leaked on 4chan. However, the detailed source code for the game started circulating on a few forums afterwards. The data is supposedly 9.3 GB in size. This is rather interesting since the original game was only 2.2 GB in size. Hence, the remaster could add more updated features to the original game.
The Simpsons: Hit & Run doesn’t seem to be officially announced by Radical Entertainment anytime soon. However, the leaked source code could lead to community-made ports of the game. If anything, the source codes being leaked only tells how much players want the game to be released. Hopefully, the developers take note of this and, while unlikely, give some sort of information about a possible remaster.
