When Microsoft shut down the Flight Simulator developers ACES Studio back in 2009, it looked like Gates' company was abandoning the fake airplane business altogether. But today at Gamescom, the company showed off a brief teaser for Flight, a Microsoft-made airplane game that does not contain the world "simulator."
The trailer gives little indication of what the game will consist of (other than flight). It features a first person point of view of some wave and a brief voiceover.
There's no indication of a release date, but it is a PC game. So us flight sim fans have a nearly-empty website, a video and a convention announcement to give us a glimpse at some possible future game upon which to hang our hopes and dreams.
