While new episodes have gone the way of the dinosaur, fans will be pleased to know the show will live on with Futurama: Game of Drones, which has been announced for mobiles.
There is no shortage of mobile games using famous cartoon characters. From Popeye slot machines to towns filled with characters from The Simpsons and Family Guy, there is a lot for fans of animated shows to dig into. Futurama isn’t one of the those shows, but it will be soon with the official announcement of Futurama: Game of Drones.
Futurama: Game of Drones isÂ being put together by the folks at Wooga, and while most assume it will be a free-to-play game, there is a silver lining in this gaming cloud.

Details on the gameplay are light, but it will involve delivering cargo as Planet Express while going up against MomCo.
