We don't know, and I seriously doubt PMDG is going to answer this. I know they were working on the Boeing 747-8 and the DC-6, but I don't know which one would get released first. Other than that, we don't know what else they're doing.

You can make an educated guess.  We know they love old aircraft but they also admit they don't sell very well.  So really the best bet is the 787 or 737Max.  My bet is that it will be the 737....huge seller and the current NGX is quite old at this point.  The other thing that I think may be an issue is the complexity of the systems on the 787.  I think it is on their horizon but will take longer.

Or a 767.  The Larger versions of the 737 Max series aren't really in operation with airlines yet.  I think they'll have a hard time obtaining the necessary data (not just the manufacturer's specs), but actual operating data from airlines at this stage to have it be viable for their next product.  Maybe 2 products from now.  Anyways, LVLD is for sure doing the 757 now and has promising previews finally.  The 787 is being done to a high standard by QW.  I seriously think us 767 fans might get lucky!

BTW, I also want an MD-80(although Coolsky mentioned they wanted to start development now for P3Dv4 even though they have stated previously they'd never develop for P3D) DC-10, 727, and 747 Classic!  A DC-8 would be cool too I guess.

Anything with some nostalgia or character!

Well Kyle has been strutting around the forums for a while now with a "Pigeon Works" banner which apparently has something to do with their next project I think I read somewhere?  

If history were to dictate the future, I would take an enducated guess that it would be something in the Boeing family. Logically one could conclude that it would be a 787. They have the contacts and resources inside of Boeing to pull this off and it would fit within their business model for their sim centre.

Anyone know what Captain RR is currently flying these days as that could provide some clue!!

But who knows

I think I read in one of the interviews Robert did that they are for sure working on the next version of the 737 (whether it's a Max, or or not, I won't speculate). So, I believe they have DC6, 747-800, and that new 737 queued up, based on the information they disclosed in the public. What else they're working on - only they know, and we'll find out soon enough :-)

Well, what ever it is, I'll buy it- even if it is a Paper Airplane simulator or a Chinese Kite simulator....I'm there!

As I've indicated in past posts through, I'd like to see this talented group stretch their legs into something a bit unusual.   After all the big Boeing Tubeliners are pretty well represented.

I'd like to see a bizjet done like a Gulfstream. Maybe even a prop airliner like the ATR. Not just heavy metal.

Sure, if you want to get sued by Gulfstream. Apparently they have been known to do this.
