• Microsoft Flight Simulator October 10th, 2019 Development Update

    Microsoft Flight Simulator

    Delivering the deliverables we said would be delivered during the delivery of updates.

    We are pleased to announce that the first episode of our Feature Discovery Series has been released! Recently presented at the Global Preview Event, Episode 1 (World) is an in-depth look at the world we're building for the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator. Head into the Insider Area to watch Episode 1!

    Feedback Pipeline

    TLDR - There is a Feedback Dashboard. The dashboard contains a summary of all feedback we collect from community discussions on a daily basis. Feedback is triaged, prioritized, and assigned a plan of action. We will provide the output of this pipeline to the community in a document tentatively called the "Feedback Snapshot" on a regular basis.

    There has been an incredible amount feedback from the press coverage of our recent Global Preview Event. This feedback, along with all feedback we've been collecting, is critically important to the team to ensure the voice of the community is being put into action through a collaborative and transparent process (i.e. use the Feedback Snapshot to give the community transparency into the feedback we're prioritizing for action). Features like ATC, Seasons, VR, Rotorcraft, SDK, etc. can be found in the Feedback Snapshot along with our current plan for next steps and timelines for resolution. The Feedback Snapshot will be released at regular intervals and we will announce the date for our first preview release in our next update.

    Tech Alpha

    • 10.15 - Recruitment for Tech Alpha 1 ends. If you would like to sign up, please head into the Insider Area and fill out the survey.
    • 10.17 - Build release preparation begins. Insider acceptance confirmation communication begins and will run through 10.24.
    • 10.24 - Release Window Opens. We will begin granting access to the Tech Alpha build to Insiders that have received acceptance confirmation.

    Build Program Update

    We are currently targeting mid/end November for our second build release (Tech Alpha 2). We expect to open recruitment for Tech Alpha 2 closer to the end of October but expect a final date in our 10.17 update.

    DR Update and Episode 2 information coming next update. Next update 10.17.

      Nels, any ideas as to when we might be able to buy this beautiful new world. Also any feel for our existing equipment or the cost from Microsoft. This will be great. I cannot wait to see the full package. The AI elements and the use of satellites for scenery should be breath taking.

      At the earliest it will not be until the middle of 2020, but they have said most likely October, so it is still a year away.

      Thanks for the Heads Up. Hate to wait that long but the longer we wait the better it will seem.
