There have been mixed reactions to the announcement of the newest Futurama mobile game. The most common reactions from the fans have been full of anger.

"Shut up and resurrect the series…Who wants another crappy pay to win mobile game?"

"I have seen every episode of Futurama. I do not wish to have a game. I want, no, WE want a new season."

"I have seen every episode of Futurama. I do not wish to have a game. I want, no, WE want a new season."

This won't be the first time that Futurama is attempting to break into the mobile game market, according to IB Times.

"Simply titled "Futurama," it was a 3D platformer with cel-shaded graphics and was available on the original Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation 2."

Futurama fans have been active on Twitter, with the general consensus being that fans are not excited by the news. Some fans believe that the game will be a rip-off of The Simpsons game with the Futurama characters while other fans are concerned that they will be charged to play the game.
