Almost certainly not. You can get it on DVD, but the old activation system doesn't even exist anymore.

This might be a good question to ask on the forum of the people selling the DVD set.  If you find a good answer, please let us know.

Or, if someone else has already found out for sure, we'd love to know.  I could speculate but that won't do any good to anyone.

That sounds like a lot of hassle. 
I am sure the will be huge (Gigabytes) updates regularly the first year. How will you deal with that?

 

What about getting new aircrafts/airports?

You will need to redeem the included code against your Microsoft account during the installation, this can only be done online.

It says on the DVD set article that an Internet connection is still required...

 

I'm sure you can find the article on Google somewhere.

Around 21 million Americans alone do not have access to broadband. About 3.7 billion people worldwide have no internet access. Those of us who do are very fortunate.

Haha no, I've used both the Xbox store and Windows store enough to know exactly how this works as this isn't the first time Microsoft have released a Microsoft Store game physically so they already have a system in place.

Take a look at the back of my own manual from my physical copy of Halo Wars 2 to see how it works:

The blurb at the bottom is the important bit "This is a digital version of Halo Wars 2 which you can install via physical media" - I guarantee that MSFS will be exactly the same.

2a, the important note is also actually important also.

Its a sim primarily based on streaming 100’s of megabytes of scenery when you fly. I doubt this is a good sim choice if you don’t have decent internet.

Yes, but there are only 2 billion computers in the world too.  So almost all those people that dont have access to broadband also dont have a computer.

To play modern aaa gaming you need internet access.  Its not 1990 anymore where games are released as a final product. Its where we are at now.

Games are bought from online market places (steam etc) and require downloading.  A lot of them require online login authentication, updates etc.  And hard copies of games you do buy generally come with a launcher that you run and it downloads the game.

I’m guessing a lot of people here aren’t Steam gamers, so they don’t realise how central good internet is to modern gaming.

So 3.7 billion people worldwide don’t have internet? Ok, well, then they’re not Asobo’s target market.
