Developer Marwan Gharib has been working on the Honda Jet for Microsoft Flight Simulator for the best part of three years. With development now wrapping up, the next logical step for the Marwan is to get it into the hands of simmers. Armed with resources and knowledge from past releases, FlightFX has stepped up to provide full publishing support for Marwan and will ensure that the plane gets attention when it releases very soon.
The partnership aligns with the vision of both parties as it allows the aircraft to be brought to market quickly and dovetails nicely with FlightFX/Volctech’s upcoming Vision Jet release. Alongside this news, the pricing for the Honda Jet was also revealed.
“This really seemed to make sense for everyone involved. Most importantly for consumers, this means that it reduces the time to market for the aircraft while dramatically increasing access. In essence we will leverage FlightFX’s existing infrastructure and distribution partnerships to support Marwan’s work. This means cross-platform availability, accounting support, marketing support and product support. We have stated from the beginning that there have been two things mission critical for us. One, we must deliver cool and well received products to our customers and two, we must do what we can, where we can to support the community as a whole. In this case this opportunity serves both missions.” Says FlightFX Partner Nick Sdoucos.
Marwan Gharib was also enthusiastic about the partnership by saying, “FlightFX has an amazing team and infrastructure in place to support a product like the Hjet coming to market, we are aligned on the same vision of delivering not just great products but ensuring they are very well supported and well communicated to the users in the friendliest possible environment, FlightFX expertise is integral to successfully get the HJet in the hands of users while providing exemplary levels of support and communication. I’m Very excited to be working with them”
It has also been confirmed that the HJet will release for $24.99 and will be made available for PC and Xbox users. A release date will also be communicated in the next couple of weeks.
“We have seen all sorts of data that supports this being an enticing price point for an aircraft in this category. There is incredible desire from consumers for quality modeling, attention to detail and realism without breaking the bank. Our belief is that users shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality for affordability. Our goal is that customers will sit back and say that they are getting a killer product at an exceptional price point.” stated Sdoucos.
This is an exciting development and we’ll be sure to keep a close eye on further details as they become available.
