Just less than a week ago, Dovetail Games gave the sad announcement that Flight Sim World was no longer in active development and that very soon, the sim would be taken off of sale. The news quickly spread throughout the community and many people were quick to form their views on why it happened, what the future could hold and whether this announcement was a surprise or if was foreshadowed in the past.
A few of us at the FSElite team have gathered our thoughts. This includes myself, Ben and John. Furthermore, we asked Jordan King for his take, which we felt was incredibly important especially after his previous videos where he believed that Flight Sim World could be the sim of the future. Equally, his input is important as a former beta tester for the product and someone who worked closely with the Flight Sim World team.
Of course, the FSElite team in general wishes the developers who worked on Flight Sim World all the best, and hope that regardless of their future, it is a bright one.
We have reached out to Dovetail Games for an interview, but at this time, they aren’t ready to go to the press.
The news of Dovetail Games cancelling Flight Sim World happened when I was half-way around the world. Just tucking into my last Peking duck meal before flying home from China, I saw the shocking news. I say shocking as just days before, we posted the news about the new open beta for their career mode. Because of this, I figured that Dovetail Games were pushing on ahead with their phase two of their project and things were going quite well.
