No a little birdie didn’t tell us, but instead Robert Randazzo from PMDG has told the community that they will experience some updates to their activation system, which as a result, PMDG will turn off their eCommerce to prevent any confusion and/or frustration.
If things go to plan, everything should be normal by Thursday, but no specific time.
In typical PMDG fashion, this goes hand in hand with a major release, as stated by RSR, so this could also be taken that the PMDG 747
v2V3 is edging closer to a release.
If I were to guess, I imagine this means that the servers are being prepared for the BETA team, and that we will be posting a release announcement come early September time. A very similar timescale to that of the original 777 release!
