Microsoft revealed last night that it will be bringing Flight Simulator to Xbox Series X|S—but not Xbox One—sometime in summer 2021. It will be available via Xbox Game Pass on launch day, too.
“Microsoft Flight Simulator will come to life on the Xbox Series X|S [next] summer,” Microsoft’s Jorg Neumann announced. “[Gamers] on Xbox Series X|S can expect the same level of depth as the PC version, allowing you to experience the most authentic and realistic flight simulator we have ever created.”
Microsoft had previously said that it would be bringing Flight Simulator to Xbox, but I can’t recall if it ever specifically excluded Xbox One before. Anyway, it’s nice to have a date, if only a rough one.
And in keeping with its treatment of other AAA titles, Microsoft also says that it will continue to update Flight Simulator with new features on both PC and console.
“As we continue adding to the sim with free World Updates, themed DLC bundles, and other improvements, Xbox Series X|S [gamers] can expect these updates to arrive on console as well,” Neumann added. “We’re also working with several third-party partners to bring additional peripherals to Xbox Series X|S that will make your console [gaming] experience even more immersive.”
