Interview with Microsoft and Asobo Studios

The new Microsoft Flight Simulator is only a few weeks away and we are able to really start talking more about the simulator as we approach the release date. The FSElite team recently had a virtual interview with Microsoft and Asobo Studios to discuss the new Flight Simulator and look at some of the challenges faced during the current global pandemic, how Microsoft is making the simulator much more accessible and much more.

Jorg Neumann (Head of Microsoft Flight Simulator), Martial Bossard (Lead Software Engineer) and David Dedeine (CCO and Co-Founder at Asobo Studio) take us through some of their own personal journeys with the simulator and some inspiration ways in which others are using the simulator for more than aviation.

Also during the video, you can watch all-new footage of the simulator in action.
