On Microsoft Flight Simulator VR Plans

In an audio interview with AVSim, talks with Microsoft's Jorg Newman and Asobo Studios' Sebastian Wloch about the upcoming revival of Microsoft Flight Simulator. An interesting element of this is highlighted by VentureBeat, where they note the discussion touches on how this oddly did not initially include plans for VR support until the prospect was raised by gamers. Word is this may not make it into the game for launch, but they seem committed to adding it as quickly as possible:
“Right after the E3 trailer came out there was a lot of people making that exact assumption, that ‘Oh yeah, this better be supporting VR right from the get go.’ It honestly wasn’t our plan. But we are listening, and we heard it, so we will try our darnedest to make it happen. Whether or not we’re going to pull it off for launch, we can’t commit to that at this point in time, but we are aware of the desire […] We will try to prioritize that over other things.”

Through my VR experience, every time a developer reluctantly implements VR, the integration and execution is half-assed.

I expect they will put in, at the very least, a glossy demo mode that supports VR within some aircraft (and perhaps certain zones of Earth) so they can lure passerby’s with WMR headsets in the Microsoft stores. If you’re expecting better VR than that at launch, you will be disappointed.

VTOL VR is built from the ground up with VR in mind. It's actually a really cool near-future military aircraft sim. It's not as high fidelity as DCS World, but it's not an arcade game by any stretch. My biggest problem with it was that it didn't support HOTAS, so I had to fly the game by holding my VR controller upright which was tiring.

Combat Air Patrol 2 is also built from the ground up for VR. It's a cool Harrier sim, although it's still in EA.
To prevent CV-19, avoid the Serious Seven: weddings, funerals, faith-based activities, bars, gyms, house gatherings and other small events.
