Microsoft Flight Simulator has reached over ten million players

"Today we are excited to announce that more than ten million pilots have enjoyed the beauty, awe, and wonder of the world available in Microsoft Flight Simulator across Windows/PC, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Xbox console," says Jorg Neumann, head of Microsoft Flight Simulator. "We would not have reached any of these milestones without the continued support of our amazing community and their ongoing engagement and contributions."

Neumann shared some more player stats: together, the community has had 500 million flights and flown 40 billion miles; the equivalent of ten million trips around the Earth or 200 "round trips" from the Earth to the Sun.

Microsoft Flight Simulator has had its fair share of updates already, but Neumann says the team is "just getting started! We have exciting plans for 2023 and beyond."
