Hope for a Phoenix
With the ACES team mostly or completely axed in the MS contraction, MS states that the FS product will continue, along with virtually every other product which has experienced losses from their teams.
At this point, like most of the flight simulation community, my thoughts are with the folks who have lost their jobs and their families. May their transition be quick and rewarding to new, exciting positions.
Meantime, it’ll be interesting to see how the product line will be continued … it’s fanbase is so large I imagine something will resurrect in time, with MS or someone else.
