Yesterday we learned that a China Eastern 737-800 crashed in Guangxi region. No survivors have been found. With that as a backdrop, Microsoft and Asobo have decided to delay the next World Update release for a couple of days.
Microsoft Flight Simulator has come up against plenty of real world events. Anytime anything happens with an airplane, the sim and it’s content, often go under a critical eye. It’s no small wonder that the decision makers behind MSFS felt that they needed to make a small delay.
And so we have a short delay for the sim’s release schedule. Here’s their brief statement released on Twitter (and on the official website).
Some may be disappointed but I think a short delay is probably a good move by their marketing and communications team. Of course the crash of an airliner with no survivors is a terrible tragedy amidst so many recently. Let’s hope for better times for all.
