Today Microsoft announced a revision to the update schedule for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The the latest World Update 3 untroduced an issue with flaps that produce too much lift across the board. Initially, the developers planned to fix it with sim update 4 in early march, but due to community feedback, they have now decided to release an hotfix next week.
This will require thorough testing, with the result that the next two major updates will be delayed by a week.
Sim update 3, which will introduce various improvements to the core simulation, is now targeting a release in early March (likely the second week of the month since it was originally slated for March 4).
World Update 4, which will improve France and Benelux, is now targeting early April (likely the first week of the month, since it was originally slated for March 30).
On top of that, we learn that the next Twtch Q&A in which the developers will respond to questions from the users and share future plans will be hosted on March 10.
