Default Microsoft Flight Simulator Is Alive!

Microsoft has released the first teaser for the new version of Flight Simulator. No number yet, just FS. I'm not sure how they've kept this under wraps, but it looks to put MS firmly back in the running for "best" flight sim.

It looks like its for the X Box.

I'm running FS2002 on my desktop locked at 60 FPS.
I can afford to wait and see what this is.

BTW, I wonder if this will have real time downloadable weather?
Maybe MS could set up a server somewhere that has weather updates?

Agreed, it's not worthy of the MS Flightsimulator name if you cannot run it on a PC.

[soapbox]
And neither is it if it ends up like Microsoft Flight with limited scenery.
[soapbox off]

But fortunately that OS is covered (Windows 10), according to the bottom of this page:

You can also sign up for the Insider Program, supposedly giving a chance to playtest it and provide feedback in the development process: https://fsi.microsoftstudios.com/insider-program-faq/
