After using the first two World Updates from Microsoft Flight Simulator We have previously informed you that the third part will affect the UK and Ireland. The launch is planned for the end of January, while the next, which is theoretically set for March, will take over the side of France and Benelux. On this occasion we inform you that the one concerning the British Isles has suffered a slight delay that has forced the teams of the game to postpone the implementation for a week, that is, around February 9th.
World Update 3 is in the final Polish phase and is now locked for release on Tuesday, February 16. The team is putting the finishing touches on all aspects of this massive update and we thank you for your continued patience.
