The popular animated series Futurama, which ostensibly follows the misadventures of a delivery company extremely far into the future, ended on Fox in 2003. Then it came back with four direct-to-video films between 2007 and 2009. Then it came back again with a final Comedy Central run that wrapped in 2013. And now, in a way, it’s back again with the video game Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow.
There’s not much we know about the game as of yet, but it’s a mobile gaming title coming this year from developer TinyCo. For those unfamiliar, TinyCo is responsible for the likes of Marvel Avengers Academy and Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff. It’s a very particular kind of licensed niche they’ve carved out, but as someone that’s spent an inordinate amount of time playing Avengers Academy … The company knows its stuff, which is why the Futurama development is particularly exciting.
