At E3 2019, Microsoft announced the return of its long-running Flight Simulator series. The company has since provided regular updates regarding the development of the next title Microsoft Flight Simulator. Last week, recruitment for the Tech Alpha opened, though no further details as to its release timeline were revealed.
Now, Microsoft has unveiled this information in the form of a timeline that reads as follows:
- October 10: Release testing complete. Lock final delivery schedule.
- October 17: Build release preparation.
- October 24: Release window opens.
As can be observed, the firm is opting for a schedule spanning a period of three weeks, beginning from the completion for release testing and ending with the opening of the release window. That's about it for this week, however. For next week, on September 26, Microsoft promises the arrival of the Feature Discovery series preview. This series is to explore feature details in much greater depth, and will kick off fully next month.
All you need to do to experience the Tech Alpha release in all its glory next month is to timely sign up for the Insider Program. Microsoft Flight Simulator is slated for a 2020 release on the PC and Xbox One, and it will be supporting third-party and community-made content upon arrival.
