Dovetail Games Withdraws Flight Sim World

Dovetail Games intends to halt work and further development on its offering of Flight Sim World effective May 28, 2018; according to sources in the group. The offering will still remain on Steam for those who bought the "pre-release" version as it currently exists. It appears that Dovetail Games (DTG) plans no further work on the simulator.

Any existing add-ons are effected by this as well. This effectively removes DTG's Flight Simulator World as a viable simulator platform for serious flight sim enthusiasts. This is a hard decision for Dovetail, but one that they obviously felt was a necessary one to make. They are removing both the simulator and add-ons from SALE.

WestWind's adopting a simulator is based on how the simulator platform is used by members of the airline. We are dependent, to as large degree, on members buying and using the platform to fly, then adding aircraft repaints, scenery, and other user or third- party improvements. As such, DTG's decision to pull out of development for this simulator package effectively removes it from serious consideration. It is HIGHLY recommended that any further purchases should be reconsidered. At this point, we have no indication of it's future. In light of the announcement, member purchase of an unsupported simulator, by it's developer, would not be a wise purchase decision.

More information is available on DTG's forum site and news release area, on their web page.
