Xbox announced that Microsoft Flight Simulator is the fastest growing entry over the franchise’s 38-year history and has reach over 2 million people.
Here a couple key stats to help you wrap your head around just how big the game has become:
- More than 50 million flights
- More than 3.5 billion miles flown
That’s the equivalent of flying 19 times roundtrip from the Earth to the Sun, or around the world over 400 thousand times. To add to those impressive figures its also said that over 9,700,000 of Microsoft Flight Simulator has been viewed on Twitch.
Microsoft have said, as a thank you to all fans, they will be adding some additional surprises to go along with the VR update scheduled for December 22.
Everyone will receive a unique Microsoft Flight Simulator themed livery for the entire launch fleet and simmers will also get the same dog-themed liveries that Rufus and Sam flew in their Pitts Special. And as if that wasn’t enough the update will also add real-time snow and true-to-life ice coverage to the entire planet.
