Developer Axonos has been releasing scenery products at a rapid rate as of late for X-Plane 11. That success has meant that the team can continue expanding their team to now support multiple projects at the same time, including new airports for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The team has now taken to the Orbx forums, as a partner of theirs, to confirm the roadmap for the rest of 2021.
The current roadmap shared by Axono highlights all the products they think they will be able to bring out before the end of the year, but wanted to highlight that development issues may arise and that may push some releases back. That said, the team kicked off confirming a large range of airports for X-Plane 11 coming by the end of the year. The team said that big airports such as Palm Springs International Airport, Gold Coast, Melbourne Airport and Hamad International Airport are all in development for the simulator. Furthermore, Joao Paulo II Airport, LaGuardia and Glasgow Airports are also in development. This will give simmers a wide range of destinations to visit if they enjoy Axonos airports.
That highly ambitious list of X-Plane 11 airports is joined by a range of products destined for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Axonos will be releasing a number of US destinations including Memphis Airport, Jackson Hole and Palm Spring Airport. Finally, the team confirmed that both Perth International Airport and Gold Coast Airport will also be developed by the team for MSFS.
In addition to airport products, Axonos has confirmed they will be “experimenting” with landmark packages for both X-Plane 11 and Microsoft Flight Simulator. The team confirmed they will be looking to make Gold Coast City Landmarks for XPL and MSFS, along with Casablanca and Paris Landmark packs coming to XPL. To develop these airports, the team will be partnering with Prealsoft.
Whilst all these announcements are certainly exciting, Axonos were not able to share previews at this point in time, and won’t be able to do so until 2-3 weeks prior to the release of any product. As always, stay tuned to FSElite so we can share the details as soon as we learn of them.
