If you missed Futurama, you might be happy to know that Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb is pitching to bring it back to Xbox One.
Most people know that the TV functions for Xbox One are a huge deal to Microsoft. Their unveiling back in May talked more about TV than video games.
Major Nelson responded to a fan’s request on reddit to try and revive Futurama as an Xbox One exclusive TV show.
Here’s what he said:
I agree…great idea. I’ll suggest this to the folks on our side. No promises or confirmation that anything can happen though. Just to manage expectations ;)
This sounds like a great idea and might make the Xbox One more unique if it can secure exclusive TV shows. There will be obvious barriers though because Futurama is owned by Fox, and Microsoft will probably have to do some sort of deal with them first in order to get Futurama running again.
