Flight Sim World: Closure Announcement
It is with great sadness that we announce the future closure of Flight Sim World.

As you know, we always had a strong ambition to bring a new experience into the
established world of flight simulation, one that deliberately overhauled both the flying
experience and the graphical fidelity, offering new ways to fly.

Unfortunately, after many detailed discussions, we regrettably don’t see a clear
direction that will allow us to keep to the development time we’d want, alongside
the player numbers we need.

So, slightly before a year since we first launched into Early Access, we have
made the intensely difficult decision to fully scale back all future development
on Flight Sim World and remove it from sale on 24th May.
I have to say I am not surprised, they were really trying to do to much to soon, compared to FSX, LM has such a huge lead with P3D that they needed a moon shot to get ahead and they did not have the resources.

Needless to say we won't be doing an FSW client in the future.
I've sworn an oath of solitude until the pestilence is purged from the lands.
