Thread: New microsoft flight simulator announced at e3!!!

    A quote from the article
    "We are making Microsoft Flight Simulator. Emphasis on the word SIMULATOR"
    "Designed for PC, optimized for multiplatform support (e.g. Xbox)."
    Beginning to sound like they're serious about doing it the right way. Wanting to keep the ecosystem (aka you and me and third party developers) alive and well and spending our disposable income. I've joined the Insider program just to see what develops over the next year. Sounds like August is when they're going to start the whole process.
    Expect banging, belching and an occasional manly fart as you roar down the runway at full power. (I have found that the engine can make similar noises)

    The full text:

    ‘On behalf of the entire Microsoft Flight Simulator team, we humbly and deeply express our gratitude for such an overwhelmingly positive response to our announce trailer! We recognize that without people like you, we don’t get to make experiences like this that span more than 35 years and maintain such a passionate following. Thank you for being patient enough to weather the turbulence caused by some of our previous missteps. Thank you for being willing to look to the possibilities of the future while asking us to be accountable for the past. We hear you, we value you, we want to make the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator for you, with you.

    While this is not the moment to answer every question being asked, we do want to take the opportunity to answer a few important ones:

    1. We are making Microsoft Flight Simulator. Emphasis on the word SIMULATOR.

    2.Designed for PC, optimized for multiplatform support (e.g. Xbox).

    3.Yes. We are supporting 3rd Party Content Development and Community Content creation. We are aware of the concerns in the current eco-system and are working to address them.

    4.Yes. We genuinely want to work closely with the community in the development of this title.

    5.Accessibility is important to us. Whatever your abilities are, if you want to fly, we are going to do whatever we can to make that happen. Yoke and pedals, mouse and keyboard, controller, etc. No pilot should be left behind.


    Over the next few months, we will be communicating our plans for the rest of the year, including important updates to the Preview Build/Insider Programs, and important development beats. Maintaining a collaborative relationship with the community starts with transparency and clearly communicated expectations. Early August is our current timeline for kicking off the communication of the development roadmap. We will continue to add clarity to this timeline throughout the summer. If you’d like the latest updates, please make sure to sign up for the Insider Program.

    This is just the first step in an adventure we are honored and excited to be taking with all of you. The reaction we received from our recent trailer was an incredible reminder that we are not alone in this passion we have for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, honestly expressing your feedback and concerns, and for taking this next step with us.

    From all of us here working on Microsoft Flight Simulator:

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    Microsoft Flight Simulator Team

    I love this article on CNBC

    They spend a lot of time on X Plane and the bizarre things Meyer says, as if that matters.

    Was Flight released in 2012? Really 7 years ago?

    Seems a somewhat biased article.

    Indeed, especially the last few paragraphs about the Ferraro character from PC Aviator...

    I guess we shouldn't expect CNBC to be knowledgeable about flightsim!
