I guess Captain Sim will say something once they know how 3rd Party addons will be included in the new MS Flight Simulator.

It looks great, and it was something that I was not expecting to come out of E3 2019, but it certainly has my hopes up.  Cheesy Grin

Would love to move across to the 64bit sims, if only I didn't have re-purchase all my addons. Staying with FSX for the moment, but feel like the change is inevitable in the end.

Well I gotta say that this was a big surprise:

Quote:
In 2014 Microsoft entered into an agreement allowing Dovetail Games to bring Flight Simulator X to Steam. Today, we are announcing that we’ve reached the end of our partnership agreement.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to Dovetail Games for the partnership they’ve provided over the past 5 years. Going forward, Microsoft will take over support of Flight Simulator X and we look forward to sharing our next steps with the community in the very near future.

Paul Jackson CEO Dovetail adds “We are incredibly proud to have looked after this fantastic flight sim during the last 5 years and we will continue publishing existing and new add-ons for FSX: Steam Edition on Steam”.

This change will not impact your game experience or impact existing or future add-ons purchased from Steam.

Microsoft

The return of Microsoft Flight Simulator X is an important step in embracing our accountability and responsibility to those that have come before us. And to those that continue to value and invest in the Microsoft Flight Simulator X experience.

That passion, investment, and appreciation must be recognized and reflected in our commitment to carry the Microsoft Flight Simulator franchise into the next generation. We are not building on, but building from, the product and history that is Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

Today, with a bit of bittersweet sentiment, we say “Welcome Home” to an old friend.

More on our FSX plans coming soon…

Sincerely,

The Microsoft Flight Simulator Team


Quoted from https://www.flightsimulator.com/

I didn't know that Dovetail Games was only looking after FSX for 5 years, then MS would take it back.

I highlighted the statemen "More on our FSX plans coming soon...", and I'm wondering what MS has planned for FSX?  Shocked
