In the lead-up to E3, there is always a wide variety of leaks and information that come out prior to the massive conferences. While some are simply just fabricated by over-excited forum posters, sometimes there I s some credence to these leaks. Thanks to a new store listing we might actually have an idea of the release date for Microsoft Flight Simulator ahead of Xbox’s E3 conference this weekend.
Twitter user Idle Sloth shared a link to the official Game Stop Ireland store page that lists Microsoft Flight Simulator as coming to Xbox Series consoles soon. How soon you might ask? Very soon, according to the store listing the game is set to release on Tuesday, June 15th. This places the release date of the game just two days after Xbox’s E3 conference which is set to go live this Sunday. While there was no doubt that Microsoft Flight Simulator would be coming to Xbox Series consoles, to hear that it could possibly be coming this soon is shocking.
While this date could certainly be a placeholder, it seems like a particularly odd and specific date. Luckily enough, we won’t have to wait long to hear more about this officially with E3 just around the corner. Hopefully, we will get more concrete information directly from Xbox in the next couple of days.
