2023 is a milestone in the gaming world, celebrating 20 years since the first Call of DutyThe Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. For many though, it's also a year to celebrate The Simpsons: Hit & Run

Back when Grand Theft Auto was finding its feet, Hit & Run was a brilliant brainwave that combined our love of Rockstar's world with our love of that yellow family.

We've been waiting for a remaster, remake, and sequel for two decades, and while that might never happen, you can honour this automotive adventure thanks to its soundtrack (randomly) popping up on Apple Music and Spotify

Why Is The Hit & Run Soundtrack On Spotify?

Although the soundtrack has apparently been available to download since last September, fans are only just noticing it's on the music streaming services.

Over on Spotify, you'll find the Hit & Run soundtrack nestled between The Simpsons: Testify and Go Simpsonic with the Simpsons.

It's unclear why Disney has released this music under the radar, but either way, we're not complaining. Even though Hit & Run might not exactly be up there with Mario in terms of soundtracks, we'll take what we can get when it comes to this forgotten classic.

There are already some favourites, with "Simpsons Hotline" and "Legitimate Business" being two of the most-listened two tracks on the album. So, dust off your PS2 and stick in a copy of Hit & Run with these bangers blaring.

Will There Be A Hit & Run Remake?

Obviously, the fact that Disney is paying attention to The Simpsons: Hit & Run has some people hoping this could be the first step toward a remake. Well, we wouldn't hold out breath. 

It's baffling that Hit & Run has never left the consoles it was released on, meaning getting hold of a copy is getting increasingly harder. The other problem is, publisher Vivendi Universal Games was shuttered and developer Radical Entertainment has been absorbed into Activision as a support studio. 

Producer Vlad Ceraldi has championed a full-blown remake or sequel, but sadly admitted that no one really knows where the rights belong these days. If anyone was going to move forward with a remake, the 20th anniversary sounds like a pretty good place to start.

Much like the hopes of Bloodborne remake, we've been burned too many times before by holding out hope for a Hit & Run remake. Then again, we could be pleasantly surprised.
