Since the last released of the Flight Simulator X game series in 2006, Microsoft stopped updating this game series.
Even though in 2012 Microsoft has released the Microsoft Flight game to replace the Flight Simulator series, but it didn’t get a good response.
This time, Microsoft is showing its seriousness in updating this simulator game. The company will release the latest series soon in 2020.
According to Microsoft, the players will be able to play this game by subscribing to the Xbox Game Pass service. Which means it can also be played on a PC.
Microsoft has also released a video trailer of this game that shows HQ images. The new Microsoft Flight Simulator game is claimed to be able to display images in 4K quality. Not only in terms of the graphics, but this simulation game is also claimed to have an increase in the gameplay.
As quoted by KompasTekno from CNBC, Tuesday (06/25/2019), Microsoft Flight Simulator itself is indeed not a projected game that can gain a large income.
But through this game, Microsoft can show off the tech that they have. One of the techs that Microsoft will show through this game is how they could map images realistically. Which is taken from Microsoft’s Azure cloud service.
For your information, this game was first released in the 1980s. This game allows the players to feel the sensation of being a pilot and flying various planes.
The last edition of this game name is Microsoft Flight Simulator X which was released in 2006. Then Microsoft made a spin-off game of it in 2012.
The newest game is Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition which was released in 2014. But, the game is only getting updates from the distribution side via Steam.
Microsoft Flight Simulator also received the title of Guinness World Record as the longest running video game series, for more than three decades. Yet, Microsoft has not given more details about the game which will be released in 2020.
