The Simpsons developers confirmed plans for multiple sequels to ‘Simpsons Hit & Run,’ but they were scrapped due to a ‘bizarre decision.’ “I’ll never understand it. Most people on the production level never understood it.”
The developers of ‘The Simpsons Hit & Run’ recently revealed that a sequel was in the works at Radical Entertainment. However, when asked about the decision to halt production on the sequel, executive producer John Melchior simply stated, “I don’t know.”
Melchior said, “It was a five-game deal for less money than I think Vivendi paid for the first game.” Melchior added, “He was just like, ‘I don’t understand. I gave it to you on a silver platter, why aren’t you just saying yes and doing these games?’ It was just a really bizarre decision. I’ll never understand it. Most people on the production level never understood it.”
The original ‘The Simpsons: Hit & Run’ game, developed by Radical Entertainment and released in 2003 by Vivendi Universal Games, gained popularity for its unique alien conspiracy storyline in Springfield. The game featured various quests and became well-known for its Grand Theft Auto-inspired racing missions.
Designer Darren Evenson said, “It was a no-brainer; it was like, well of course we’re going to be doing this.” Evenson added, “The stars are aligned, we’re treading down this path. And then it was just like a, ‘Huh, I guess we’re not.'”
