Update 21-May-2020 @ 08:15z: An update was shared to the same Facebook group as below offering some more information surrounding the suspension of development. This time, Andrzej Borysewicz posted on behalf of Ricardo Bolognini who issued the new statement. Whilst no questions were really answered, the updated information seems to suggest that X-Plane changes are the primary cause of the delays and ultimate halting of development. Full statement below.
“Hello, I am one of the SSG founders and the main developer with Javier Cortés. We have decided to suspend development of the CRJ for a while due to many X-Plane changes that delayed the project. New X-Plane technologies and the pressures of the COVID pandemic have led us to focus more on our families and being quarantined with children (in some cases).
AJ Borysewicz has been one of the developers of the CRJ who worked a lot into this project and did not want to wait until next year and wanted to explore new horizons. We at SSG decided to let AJ as one of the developers to keep going with the project with another group. It does not mean that we will be abandoning the CRJ, it means that for a while with this new landscape and new projects it is stopped while we prepare our current 2 projects for a new simulation era. When (and if) the CRJ project is taken done up by SSG in the future it will incorporate the new technology we are incorporating into our current lineup.”

In an announcement on the CRJ-Series by SSG Facebook group, Supercritical Simulations Group (SSG) has announced that development has halted on their CRJ-700 project.
In a post made by SSG developer Andrzej Borysewicz, he revealed that ‘Due to a specific situation we are all in CRJ work has stopped. No info on if it will be resumed.’
SSG has previewed a number of screenshots of the CRJ project in the past, the last announcement being that work had started on the SASL and displays in February.
FSElite previewed W.I.P. cockpit shots in early February and the project was looking promising, it was expected to be a follow up from SSG’s Boeing 747-8 v2 released late last year.
