Microsoft announced today that VR support for Flight Simulator will be released on December 22, 2020.
At launch it will support
- Windows Mixed Reality Headsets
- Oculus VR Headsets
- Steam VR Headsets
It doesn't appear as though touch controllers will be supported at launch, but all existing input interfaces such as yoke, throttle, joystick, etc will work.
Mouse support has been translated to 3D space so you'll be able to use your mouse to interact with cockpit controls like switches, buttons, dials, etc.
In-game windows such as ATC or the VFR map will be able to be positioned in 3D space as well.
Main menu navigation is also supported so you won't have to remove your headset to set up your flight.
