PMDG, a well known third part developer for FSX and Prepar3D, has announced that they are bringing their well known and highly regarded products over to the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. It’s the first of what are likely to be many announcements coming in the future for the new sim. Let’s have a quick look at what this means.
Four highly detailed airliners
In an update yesterday on their forums, PMDG decided to clear up any confusion and rumours and note that they were planning to bring their four aircraft product line to the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. Having build the line for P3D and FSX before that, PMDG have become well known for their airliners, notably the 737, 747, 777 and DC-6.
Here’s what the statement says,
Just to minimize any guesswork, we are planing to bring each of our four major product lines (737, 747, 777 and DC-6) into the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. MSFS promises to give us entirely new capabilities, and it will take some time to adapt each product to capitalize, but they will all be brought over in time. We will have more to say about this at the right time and place, but there has been a bit of hyperbolic discussion that I wanted to clarify with this piece of information here.rsrandazzo on the PMDG forums
Obviously this isn’t a full announcement but it is a confirmation that their are actively working towards releasing their products for the new Flight Simulator.
As of yet, Microsoft has not announced any airliners beyond the A320 Neo and 747-8 so more airliners is sure to make a lot of people happy. PMDG are known for creating highly detailed airliners although they are not without their detractors as some of the prices for their airliners can run over $100 USD.
