Flight Sim World: Closure Announcement
23 APRIL - DTG CRYSS
It is with great sadness that we announce the future closure of Flight Sim World.
As you know, we always had a strong ambition to bring a new experience into the established world of flight simulation, one that deliberately overhauled both the flying experience and the graphical fidelity, offering new ways to fly.
Unfortunately, after many detailed discussions, we regrettably don’t see a clear direction that will allow us to keep to the development time we’d want, alongside the player numbers we need.
So, slightly before a year since we first launched into Early Access, we have made the intensely difficult decision to fully scale back all future development on Flight Sim World and remove it from sale on 24th May.
We’re sure you have lots of questions, we hope we’ve answered a few here.
FAQ
What happens to Flight Sim World if I already own it?
It will remain in your Steam library, available to play in its current format.
Will the sim be taken off sale?
Yes, and we’re working to the date of 24th May 2018. We want to give anyone who does not yet own a copy of the sim enough time to get a copy and keep it safe in their library for future play.
What will happen to any Add-Ons?
Add-Ons will also come off sale, but those you already own will still also be in your Steam library.
We hope you can give the team the respect they deserve for their tireless hard work to date. Please know that all of us here at Dovetail hold flight simulation, the creators of add-on content, and especially you, the community for this sim, in incredibly high regard for both your support and time with Flight Sim World.
- The Flight Sim World Team

It's really too bad.
I think it had a lot of potential.

Just saw the news! This could have been a worthy successor to FSX in future.

According to CEO of PMDG, this was not a surprise to the developer community :(
