MSFS Development Update (11.02) – World Update Postponed

The Microsoft Flight Simulator Team has posted another development update indicating that the planned update will now, all being well, be released on Tuesday 16th February.

Originally scheduled for the 11.02, having been postponed previously, the development team has informed the community that they are in the final stages of polishing, and finishing touches are being made to what will be a significant update to the new simulator.

While this may be disappointing to some, it is good to know the team is ironing out possible bugs before release. In the meantime, more screenshots have been posted to enjoy.

As usual, the team have also posted the regular feedback charts, and third party and SDK updates which can be found below.
