A New Microsoft Flight Simulator is Coming in 2020

The classic Microsoft Flight Simulator is due to return in 2020 as Microsoft announced with a gorgeous 4K trailer during the Xbox Briefing at E3 2019.

Among the many new announcements made by Microsoft at their Xbox Briefing at E3 2019 today, Microsoft Flight Simulator speaks the most to my sense of gaming nostalgia. Yes, that may be strange, considering the many other announcements of classic titles, but Microsoft’s Flight Simulator was one of the first games I recall playing.

The trailer reveals a lot of stunning scenery recorded in 4K and I can’t wait to see this in action on my glorious gaming PC, thanks to the new Xbox Live Game Pass Ultimate. We’ll be eagerly awaiting more news and details on Microsoft Flight Simulator over the days and weeks to come.

For those that prefer their trailers on YouTube, the official announcement trailer is embedded below.
