I just watched an updated video (Part VI) where they discuss what they've done to model Airports around the world. They claim to have included every active airport in the world. Wow. Anyway, it's just amazing. I never play games. But I will buy this one.... and the stuff I need to make it work (Yoke, Foot pedals, etc..)
learning never stops...

They released the anticipated hardware specs a couple weeks ago and looks about what I would have expected. My current machine is a Ryzen 2600X/RX580 which seems in the middle ground so I'm not worried but I was probably going to upgrade to a navi card soon anyway. I'm interested to see how it will do on Xbox. The bottom end of the specs is around Original/S performance, so I wouldn't bet on that running higher than 900p, maybe only 720. One X is close to the middle and will probably be good for 1080/30. I don't think Series X will compare to an RVII/2080 but it'll definitely be well past the "recommended" tier and should run 4K/60 with ray tracing.

Great. My PC is just a tad better than the minimum requirements. Time for a new system!

About 30 years ago I had a wish one day Flight Simulator would be this realistic. I'm so happy this is coming true. Just for FS2020 I bought a new desktop pc with AMD 3700X and Nvidia RTX 2080 and 32GB of RAM.

Do we have any idea when this will be released? Seems like it has been close for a while.

Nothing has been said about delays so as far as anyone know it's still on track for this year. We might hear something at the Xbox event they're having next month. I know the console version will come later but they can give a first look at it running on the Series X and give a more solid launch window like fall for PC and next spring/summer/whenever for Xbox.

There is no official release date as of yet but release is expected towards the late fall/end of the year.
