Flight simulations just aren't selling anymore. Maybe that's because no one is making them, or is it that no one is buying them? Is it like the question of the chicken or egg? (Scientists now say that the chicken came first.)
Either way, Microsoft is plotting to release another flying game, but this one won't have the long title of "Microsoft Flight Simulator," instead simplify things with just "Microsoft Flight."
We don't know if it'll be a hardcore or casual affair yet, but hang on to those flight sticks and throttles!
Twenty-eight years after the debut of "Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0," Microsoft Game Studios also announced the internal development of "Microsoft Flight," a new Windows exclusive. "Microsoft Flight" will bring a new perspective to the long-standing genre, welcoming everyone, including long-time fans, to experience the magic of flight.
A teaser of the future of Flight on the Windows-based PC is available at http://www.microsoft.com/games/flight
