Last week, Robert from PMDG announced that Wednesday 29th January 2020 would see the likely release of the 737 NGXu Expansion pack, which would include the 600/700 variants. In a statement issued on the PMDG forums, Robert has confirmed that the release will see a short delay.
The reason for the delay is that Robert has been called away to fly on a three-day trip, which meant he would not be back until Friday evening. PMDG has specifically decided to thus delay the release until the following Wednesday as to not put a specific coverage requirement on support over a weekend.
Here’s what Robert said on the forums.
“Captains, we were planning to release the PMDG 737NGXu Base Package update and the PMDG 737-600/700 Expansion Package today, 29JAN20. Unfortunately, my schedule changed and I have been called out to fly a three-day trip, returning late in the day on Friday. […] Apologies for the late change. It is pretty unusual I get a schedule change this late in the game.”
Robert also reconfirmed that going forward, updates and releases will release on a Tuesday/Wednesday as it makes the most sense from a logistics standpoint.
We’ll inform you should any additional news be released regarding the update for the PMDG 737 NGXu Base Package and the 600/700 expansion pack.
