It's Official, Development STOPPED on Microsoft Flight!!
So, it's time for Flight to fly off into the sunset. I for one, am gutted. First off, it was a bold idea that has not been given the time to mature into the great game it could have been, but I guess the writing has been on the wall for a while. By completely ignoring the flight sim crowd's reaction and feedback to the game, they shot themselves in their collective arrogant foot.
Secondly, I have bought every bit of DLC. So what the hell do I do now? How long will the servers stay on for this huge investment, seeing as you need to be online to play?
So, heres the official statement.
Microsoft Studios is always evaluating its portfolio of products to determine what is best for gamers, families and the company, and this decision was the result of the natural ebb and flow of our portfolio management. Many factors were considered in the difficult decision to stop development on "Microsoft Flight" and "Project Columbia," but we feel it will help us better align with our long-term goals and development plans. For "Microsoft Flight," we will continue to support the community that has embraced the title and the game will still be available to download for free at http://www.microsoft.com/games/flight/.
So, one final note on the passing of this dead in the water flight simulator, FUCK YOU MICROSOFT, you wouldn't know a good idea if it bit you on the arse, and next time listen to your fucking community instead of blocking all comments from the website, retards...
