Gooday Doctor


Please explain what is happening  in the development of Flight Sim?


First, Locheed Martin were supposed to buy the total rights and mechanics for MS Flight Sim. Add-on suppliers were supplying product compatible with the new programme Yet I have not seen the LM (ne MS) Flight Simulator advertised anywhere!


Now Dovetail Games / Steam /Valve,  in a lead PR release stories,  claim that they have bought the rights and the workings of Flight. My guess is that Dovetail bought the rights to MS's withdrawn new iteration into flight simulator which they called Flight, while LM are developing the original MS Flight Simulator. But that is my guess ...


So what gives?

Further to my original post, http://pcaviatorforu...with-microsoft/, I am not aware of any further developments.  Has anyone else heard anything?
