Whilst there continues to be a bit of a shortage of components in order to make hardware across the world, developers and manufacturers continue to press on with their plans to provide fans with new ways to interact with their games and simulators. Thrustmaster is one such company and has confirmed plans to announce a number of new products before the end of the year.
On social media, Thrustmaster said that before the end of the year, they will unveil two new bits of hardware that relate to flight simulation. The first will be a new Flying Joystick bundle for PC and the second will be a new Flying Yoke system for Xbox consoles and PC. Details on both are nonexistent right now. On the post, they said, “we are truly grateful for the support and interest you are showing by regularly asking for news on our upcoming projects.” It continues, “as we have a lot of amazing products in all our different universes to reveal in the next six months, here is a summary of what we will unveil before the end of 2021.”
Thrustmaster has been actively developing and bringing new hardware to the flight simulation scene for years now, with the most recent hardware being the TCA Airbus packages. They have been met with critical acclaim, so hopefully whatever Thrustmaster has in store will meet those same expectations and demands.
As for when and where this announcement will take place; it appears as though FlightSimExpo 2021 is the answer. We don’t have any further details just yet, but with such a large presence at this year’s show, there’s no doubt something will be announced during this period of time. As always, we’ll be following the news and bringing it back to you as and when we learn more.
