A lot of people were unhappy when Microsoft announced that they’re killing the Flight Simulator series. Today, Microsoft announced great news for all fight simulation fans as they’re working on a new exclusive Games for Windows Live title called Microsoft Flight. Internal development is underway by Microsoft Game Studios on the title.
Twenty-eight years after the debut of “Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0,” Microsoft Game Studios announces the internal development of “Microsoft Flight.” “Microsoft Flight” will bring a new perspective to the long-standing genre, welcoming everyone, including long-time fans to experience the magic of flight.
According to Phil Spencer, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Game Studios, it seems as if the focus on the return of Flight Simulator as Microsoft Flight seems to be a more social and connected experience. This should easily be made possible thanks to Games for Windows Live.
“Today, we’re bringing powerful, inventive gaming experiences to the Windows-based PC. Over the years, our PC heritage captured the hearts and minds of millions of players. Reinventing these iconic franchises with social, shared experiences at their core marks the beginning of our return to PC gaming in bold new ways.”
Microsoft have released a tease trailer that doesn’t really tell anything about the game play. It’s just a pre-rendered video. Check it out anyhow:
No screenshots, feature set or other such information about Microsoft Flight is available for now. We will keep you updated as we get more information. We’re really excited for this one!
