Dovetail Games have just announced that their hotly anticipated Flight School sim platform will not be releasing on the 25 April as planned. The new release date has been pushed back to 24 May instead. It is an unexpected announcement, one sure to sadden a few people, but it is better for them to delay the release to make the product as functional as possible, then to get it now and then wait for hot fixes to sort out inevitable issues. Here is their delay announcement in full:
Dovetail Games Flight School releases May 24th
Since we announced Dovetail Games Flight School at the beginning of the year, we have been in constant communication with you via various forums and social networks such as Reddit, Facebook, YouTube, AVSIM and more. Additionally, we have demoed Flight School publicly at events including Insomnia57 and EGX Rezzed. We are thrilled by the positive response Flight School has received and the amazing support shown to us by both new and existing flight simmers.
In order to further address the incredible amount of feedback we have received in the last few months, we have made the decision to push back the release of Flight School to 24th May 2016. This extra time will allow us to make Flight School an even better, more polished experience for our players.This isn’t a decision we have made lightly, and we wholeheartedly apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
All of your ideas and suggestions have proven invaluable in helping to us to shape the development of Flight School so far, and we would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to get in touch with us. We will continue to monitor your feedback and answer your questions, and we look forward to sharing Flight School with you on 24th May.
-Dovetail Games Flight School team
Lets hope that the extra month will be enough to get the product ready for prime time!
