All true, I have found.
So much for their fine DLC business plan.
No joke. MS folks found out today that they were done.
Here's their official statement:
Microsoft Studios is always evaluating its portfolio of products to determine what is best for gamers, families and the company, and this decision was the result of the natural ebb and flow of our portfolio management. Many factors were considered in the difficult decision to stop development on "Microsoft Flight" and "Project Columbia," but we feel it will help us better align with our long-term goals and development plans. For "Microsoft Flight," we will continue to support the community that has embraced the title and the game will still be available to download for free at http://www.microsoft.com/games/flight/.
The devs and artists have no worries, their work on MSFlight was better than could be expected knowing the circumstances and limitations they had to work under. They will all find new jobs with better prospects, they were not the "problem".
FSNext anyone? Joshua?

wait so is the flightsim section of Microsoft done or just MS Flight? I hope the flight simulator makers aren't done, I was looking forward to more flight sims from MS
MS Flight WAS the flightsim section of Microsoft and they are done. Now, everyone will wait to see what the future holds, but for right now MS Flight is finished.
