Fellow simmers and customers,
Like you I was blindsided by the announcement of MSFS 2024. Interested in getting some new info about Starfield like some other folks... I certainly didn't expect a the imminent nuclear bomb Microsoft was in the midst of dropping. Just as things were starting to settle down in the MSFS world with SDK issues, development pipelines and overall stability and popularity with hardcore simmers, the idea of a whole new sim coming out in 2024 is both perplexing and worrisome.
However, Microsoft has release some initial info after which I can make an initial assessment on where things will go in terms of Flightbeam products. With the current info given, it's safe to assume the following:
You will not need to re-purchase any Flightbeam products from MSFS 2020 to MSFS 2024
You can transfer your current license to the new sim, without any additional cost.
Any purchases made from now is also available to use in MSFS 2024 once released, at no additional cost.
Lastly, this has no effect on our current production.
One particular troublesome issue is once again the notion of MSFS users "freezing" any addon purchases until MSFS 2024. Please support your developers, this is our livelihoods, and the development funding of new products depend on your continued support. Thanks and be sure to hang on tight for this new crazy adventure!
