PMDG and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 ?

Recommended Posts

With the news two days ago of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on final approach for touchdown by an August 18th 2020 release date, I got to wondering how long it might take before PMDG starts to craft a fleet of airliner masterworks for this new and very promising simulator platform.  Will the 737 NG and 747 series PMDG creations easily translate into the new 2020 MSFS, or will a complete ground-up coding mega-project wind up as the only way to field PMDG airliners with this new platform ?

Any thoughts on these musings of mine would be welcome, as I feast my eyes on the ultra-realistic ground scenery and aircraft detail unveiled in MSFS 2020 teaser videos now appearing on Youtube.

The 737 NGX is finished there is NO more development of 32 bit products, The NGXu was built from the ground up as a replacement of the NGX as a 64bit platform for P3D v4/v5 and continues to be developed. The NG3 will be the MSFS 2020 version of the 737, again separate platform.

Those who bought the NGXu by 12/31/2019 will get a $99.00 credit towards the purchase of the PMDG NG3 for MSFS 2020 

The QOTS II 747,777 and DC-6 will be made for MSFS 2020 as well.

NGXu, NG3, 777, QOTS II and DC-6 will also be GFO capable. the NGX will not.

 

FYI all this was available on the PMDG forum...

I hope that they will fix the overdue problems with the LNAV, VNAV, autopilot on all their products that they keep on claiming that they are "working on" for such a long time (years by now) and is still not fixed.

FsLabs and PMDG (if fixed properly) will be an excellent addition for the MFS2020.

Much thanks for this explanation Snow Falcon.  I did a perfunctory search before starting this topic, so I missed the topic already created to address the same question.  Good to know that PMDG will roll out some Boeing jets for the 2020 Microsoft Flight Sim once it is released.

Sounds plausible, although I wouldn't be surprised, if it takes longer... 🙂

And the MD11? It's a fabulous plane to fly!

 I believe TFDI has that covered since the PMDG seems to not be interested in updating the md-11. The most they do these days is just provide support for those still with it.
