      I don't get this. Why FSX and not their upcoming "next generation flight simulator"? Are they going to compete against themselves? This does not make any sense.

      Also, if the past reveals anything about the future, this does not at all bode well for 3PDs.

      Seems like the first step to monetize the addon market for the declining simulator.
      Not sure what PMDG will make of it. Or iFly. Nor am I sure what DTG think they're going to DO with it.
      I hope this isn't the Papa Tango issue, resurfacing.

      Being licenced by Boeing means nothing. The terrible Abacus 787 was "licenced by Boeing". It just means DTG can use Boeing's logo. Also if they are planning these releases in the next few months they won't be deep or accurate simulations. No doubt very good eye candy if that's what you want.

      Fair enough, but I still don't see why they keep putting all this time and effort in a 10 year old flight sim.

      Maybe they are paving the way for PMDG to release their FSX products on Steam after all?

      "All this time and effort": to release/deliver content IMHO does not necessarily mean that Dovetail produces that content. Only that they want to sell some. If it is compatible with their future sim too, then this might even make sense.

      True. As for PMDG, I am quite certain that they are already allied with Boeing. Not sure that Dovetail would need a separate agreement, but who knows.
