Although we didn’t put it in the title, because in English it doesn’t have much impact, you might know exactly what Phil Spencer meant when he said “No fucking way” , in reaction to seeing for the first time the new Microsoft Flight Simulator, which will be released in 2020. This is what Jorg Neumann, the man behind the title from Asobo Studios, told VGC in an interview .

In a soon-to-be-published interview with Neumann, he extracted this tremendous curiosity, stemming from the presentation for validation of the project to Phil Spencer, in the hope that he gives the green light to the project. He was sure he could convince him:

When I first showed it, the demo I showed Phil was Seattle in 3D. I walked around the Microsoft campus – literally the building we were talking in – and he asked me why he was showing me a video of Seattle. So I knew I had it.

Microsoft Flight Simulator remains a benchmark for realism in video games.

The story continues, as Neumann said: “It’s real time”. And Phil laughingly said “No way”. The demo was so surprising that the Xbox boss himself didn’t believe it at first. The technology behind Microsoft Flight Simulator is impressive, but what’s even more impressive is the incredible realism it brings to the screen.

A very fun oddity indeed, but back to the game itself, it’s still alive and well, with a huge update received last week, adding new planes and even helicopters for free, to mark the franchise’s 40th anniversary. .
