Microsoft has announced a new installment of its long-running Microsoft Flight Simulator series. The new Flight Simulator, which was teased briefly at Microsoft’s E3 keynote, is powered by Microsoft’s Azure cloud artificial intelligence.
There’s not a lot of detail beyond that — except that the trailer, captured in 4K video, looks gorgeous. The hyper-detailed Microsoft Flight Simulator series has been running since the 1980s. Its last installment was the 2014 Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition, a continuation of the 2006 Flight Simulator X.
The series has generally been PC-only, and although this installment is part of the Xbox Game Pass program (which is also available on PC), Microsoft still refers to it as “Microsoft Flight Simulator for PC.”
