Microsoft’s decision to close Flight Simulator developer Aces has created an opening for those that create add-ons for the game, Just Flight has said.

“There has always been a degree of uncertainty about when the next version would be released, and whether existing products out would be compatible,” said Just Flight boss Dermot Stapleton.

“It seems that the latest version Flight Simulator X, will be the sim of choice for the next few years and so we can use this period of stability to develop more complex products, safe in the knowledge that the platform won’t be undergoing any kind of radical change.”
