|Preparing for Microsoft Flight Simulator: It won’t come as a surprise to learn that we are pivoting our entire development process in order to include this exciting new platform. I’m not going to focus too much on this process for today’s announcement as we have a bunch of information to share on this topic at a future date- but suffice-to-say that most of what you will read below is a cascade effect of our strategic realignment to support this new platform. We do anticipate bringing the 737, 747, 777 and DC-6 product lines into Microsoft Flight Simulator and we will share more details on that in the near future.|
End of Development for all 32bit platforms: We have previously announced that we will no longer develop products for FSX, FSX-Steam Edition or Prepar3D v3. We are expanding this stop order to include future product updates. Effective immediately there will be no planned updates to any of our 32bit offerings, and we are actively evaluating the End-of-Life process for all FSX, FSX-Steam Edition and Prepar3D v3 titles. Shortly we will announce an End-of-Life date for product sales of 32bit versions that is estimated to be within the next 6 months. We will continue to offer technical support for existing customers well after these products are removed from sale, however and anyone who has purchased them will still have full access to them within their PMDG purchase history at pmdg.com. Summary: If you own these products it won't impact you. We are simply going to end new sales in the near future.
End of Development for Xplane platforms: For some time we have been watching market metrics with the Xplane platform and evaluating our own development schedule in order to find a gap into which we can slide a dedicated Xplane development cycle. As part of our strategic objective to simplify our development agenda, we are pivoting to dedicate all of our development resources to our Prepar3D v4 product lines and to our upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator product lines. Effective immediately, we are no longer evaluating an Xplane development cycle at any point in the current five year window, nor do we see any active XPlane development time being allocated at PMDG.
