Head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann said in October that VR support was the “number one” request from the Flight Simulator community and a team had been working on it for over a year.
“The flight sim community has been a very active and insightful partner in shaping how the team approached VR, and continues to be a critical partner in our continued development as we make further improvements and add new features to the simulation,” Neumann said on Tuesday.
“Adding VR to Microsoft Flight Simulator was a direct result of community feedback, and we look forward to continued involvement in the future of the franchise with us.”
Flight Simulator’s third world update will launch in January and focus on the United Kingdom.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is scheduled to release for Xbox Series X/S in the summer of 2021.
