After a long time, Microsoft Flight game team have made some communication with the public. Its roughly about 2 years I guess since we first heard that Microsoft is going to make online version of Flight simulator called Microsoft Flight. Today the team posted the following message in their blog,
Amongst the most popular questions the Flight team has been asked via e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org are those about the release date and game performance. While we aren’t quite ready to talk about a release date, we did want to share a bit about our approach towards performance and hardware.Performance optimization has been a core focus of our development from an early stage. To achieve this, we constantly monitored game performance metrics across a range of hardware configurations and reacted each time we saw a new feature or code change that caused a dip below the established thresholds. The end result is that Flight looks fantastic on a brand new PC, but because of the emphasis on performance throughout development, it also runs well on older desktops and budget laptops.
