Never played one of these but good to see it come back.
This series had a very strong core following on PC, so I'm happy to see that they will also release it on Xbox.
The trailer looked amazing. Will be awesome to revisit some of the places in a digital world and obviously new places too!

The world looked beautiful in what I saw on E3 and I honestly can't wait to get my hands on this. I haven't played MS Flight Sim in a long time, but I've got my flying fix from Elite Dangerous over the last few years.

I'm wondering how well the controls will translate over to an Xbox controller.

I’d be more excited if there was a release date

I hope you can also fly with a sleigh and some reindeer. That would be perfect.

As a long time PC flght sim enthusiast, this was the highlight of E3 for me. The game just looks amazing.

Having played similar games in the past, I was amazed by how realistic and detailed the ground looks like in the E3 video.

My guess is this game will heavily utilize the cloud and most of these huge piles of data will come from the cloud on demand.

It's great to see the main MS Flight Sim being brought back, loved it back in the 90s on PC.

Thou, we did have Microsoft Flight (PC) Achievements a few years ago..

It would be great if they include mp for this & bring the skies to life, like with Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition .
