Asobo's July Surprise -- Last Chance Guesses

Recommended Posts

There was a thread a while back where simmers were trying to guess Asobo's "July Surprise" for MSFS. I think we can all agree that a lot has changed in the sim world during the past few weeks. So with July now here -- and the Surprise being unveiled any day now -- I'd like to hear your latest guesses about what this surprise may be.

I predict it's either seasons or Concorde for MSFS.

I wonder whether MSFS2024 was intended to be the July Surprise. But Asobo decided to release the information beforehand.

Yeah, I think MSFS 2024 was intended to be the July surprise but development went quicker than anticipated and Microsoft decided to release the information beforehand.

Got a feeling v2024 was the July surprise too. If they can drop a deep dive video regularly from now till release on various aspects of v2024 I'd be a very content man lol.. like, at least once a month please? 😁

Could be, however targeting an announcement at the XBOX event was probably always the plan.

Why though?  It's SOOO early, relative to release date.

I was thinking the same, but who knows. The latest Dev Update (June 29th) still has the surprise listed for July, so maybe it's something else.

Stressed ground controllers who demand to know which ramp you're cleared to. In a Brooklyn accent 😛

Quite possibly although I’m still convinced that was also a case of left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing 😃

If that was so, I think they would've removed it from the project roadmap, which still had it on there a couple days ago. I have a feeling MS/Asobo have their stuff pretty dialed in and they always knew when they were going to announce 2024. It's unlikely that they just couldn't wait to tell us.
