Flight Simulator – Today is the day…. (updated)

… that it all really starts again…

Over on the Flight Simulator news page, they have announced the following important dates:

  • AUGUST 15th β€“ Insider Program Kickoff (preview of Development Roadmap Release)
  • AUGUST 22nd β€“ Development Roadmap Release (General Release)
  • AUGUST 29th β€“ Build Program Kickof

One of the most important topics we see being discussed in the community is WHEN we plan to start talking about the project. You want the information, the team wants to share this information, so where exactly IS the information? It’s coming. The challenge with creating a transparent development process built on collaboration is that we have to work on the foundation for delivering that information before doing so. With that said, we will be kicking off our Feature Exploration Series in the fall where we will be working closely with the community to walk-through the next iteration of Microsoft Flight Simulator in granular detail.


That said, because we understand the importance of this topic to the community, the team is working hard to adjust the schedule to see what information we can share earlier than currently planned. In our August 15th update, we will provide more clarity on where we at in the process.


They also posted an update about the Dovetail partnership coming to an end, which means that the ownership of support and ongoing updates to Flight Simulator X return to the Microsoft team.

Its all still very exciting for me anyway πŸ™‚

Probably the most exciting thing is that since the last major release of Flight Simulator, I am now the proud owner of twin children. Its a good bet that at least 50% of them will love this product as much as I do. That means only one thing….. more PC time πŸ™‚

I am almost tempted to start back up the design team for the Irish Scenery again too πŸ™‚

Update……… later same day πŸ™‚
