Despite the series’ finale in 2013 (after returning from the dead in 2010), Futurama has lived on, whether it be in a Simpsons crossover or, now, a mobile video game.
Developer Wooga has announced a partnership with Fox Digital Entertainment to develop Futurama: Game of Drones for mobile devices. Players will battle as the Planet Express team in the midst of a trade war with MomCo, traveling to familiar locations from the Futurama universe. Players will be delivering cargo and connecting cargo drones to solve puzzles in the hopes of winning against MomCo.
No release date has been announced for the game, but it will feature a new storyline from a trio of writers including Patric M. Verrone, who wrote for both the series and the Futurama comic book, which has remained ongoing despite the show’s cancellation.
A full Futurama game was produced for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Gamecube in 2003. Wooga’s other mobile games include Crazy Kings, Diamond Dash, and Pearl’s Peril.
