Rumour: Lockheed Martin Software Update for Prepar3d Coming Soon?


https://www.prepar3d.com/It’s been over a year since Lockheed Martin released Prepar3d v3 for our home simulators, and just under 3 months since our last decimal update. With that in mind, Lockheed Martin posted some rather interesting news over on their Twitter.

As you can see from the Tweet below, Lockheed Martin have suggested that they will be launching a new ‘software update’ for their Prepar3d product. Alongside the text came a screenshot showing off Prepar3d over being displayed 24 screens! (I’m also sure it’s Taxi2Gate’s KMCO)

The most interesting part of the tweet is when Lockheed Martin talk about “a whole new world.” Is this a reference to the rumoured upcoming 64-bit version? I’m hedging bets on a more incremental update to see us go from 3.4 to 3.5.

This is also backed up by FSLabs’ saying that they’re working with Lockheed Martin to fix a few issues in Prepar3d before being able to release their highly anticipated A320X.

Of course, this could just relate to their more commercial platform. Currently the link on their Tweet only heads back to their homepage (their SSL certificate is out of date at the time of writing, but the site is still safe to visit), so no further information is currently available.

We will keep an eye on it and let you know what we find out.
