Microsoft Flight Simulator has begun its internal testing and Insider program. Next update on August 29th.
First revealed during the Xbox E3 2019 showcase, Microsoft Flight Simulator is being developed by Xbox Game Studios in partnership with Asobo Studio. This sim uses 2 petabytes of geodata to generate the world below and the skies above.
Ahead of its release, Microsoft will be working closely with the community on multiple Insider tests, providing updates on builds of the game and holding a technical alpha.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently scheduled to release sometime in 2020 on Xbox One and PC. As with all Xbox Game Studios titled, it will be included in Xbox Game Pass.
