Microsoft Flight Simulator heads to Xbox Series X/S this July

Microsoft's impressive flight simulation finally makes its console debut this summer.


Following a successful launch on PCs last year, Microsoft is now ready to bring over its award-winning Flight Simulator to Xbox Series X/S. The console version was announced today during the Xbox/Bethesda Games Showcase and it will launch on July 26.

The latest iteration of Microsoft's legendary flight simulation series made its formal debut last summer with a release on PC. I was rather smitten with the game, the first AAA budget PC exclusive to come down the pipe in many years, and wrote as much in my review:

We also got a glimpse at a Top Gun: Maverick movie tie-in for Flight Simulator during the presentation. Exactly what this partnership between Microsoft and Paramount entails is yet to be seen, but I suspect that aviation buffs will be satisfied. If you have an Xbox Series S or X and would like to fly the friendly skies, there is no better time than on July 27 when the game releases for the consoles.
