Microsoft Flight Simulator, July Development Update + New Screenshot

The project team at Microsoft have posted a brief development update and new preview image with regard to Flight Simulator (2020). Please see below.

As the team enters the dog days of summer, we’ve been hard at work putting the finishing touches on many of the big updates we’re planning to share toward the end of summer. Our excitement continues to build, as does our impatience to share this information with you. So we press forward counting down the days until we can open the hangar doors and dive into the details with you.

There are many very important topics being discussed in the community (e.g. New Flight Model/IFR-VFR Flight/Weather Simulation Depth/VR Support, etc.). The team is constantly monitoring the feedback/suggestions being discussed and please know that many of these topics and more, will be covered thoroughly in near future updates.

In the meantime, here’s a work-in-progress screenshot, and confirmation that the Insider Program will be starting in early August as part of our development roadmap kickoff.

On July 25th, we will be releasing another update on our plans for August and September. Until next time, know that the team is excited and anxious to share more information with you.


The Microsoft Flight Simulator Team

Keep in mind, the simulator was first introduced back in June. Moreover, the team also posted a follow-up statement regarding the announcement later that month.

The development update was issued via the Microsoft Flight Simulator website.

    Thanks Microsoft for not forgetting about us.
