To bring more peripherals to the Xbox Series X/S to help make the console simming experience more immersive, Microsoft said it working with third-party partners. In August this year, Microsoft, after a 14-year hiatus, launched the latest version of Flight Simulator video game. The game allows anyone to role play as a pilot.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 launches on PC tomorrow via the Microsoft store and steam, but lots of people continue to ask: can you play Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox One?
Although the game will be available for Xbox Game Pass on PC as early as August 18th, you will not be able to play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on Xbox One.
This is because there is no release date for the ambitious pilot-sim on console yet despite a version being in the works.
In regard to the Xbox One version, no release date has been announced, but developer Asobo Studio have said that it will not jeopardise the PC version.
“The Xbox will help us to optimize the product, so it will also be a benefit for PC,” said lead software engineer, Martial Bossard.
“There is nothing PC will lose from the Xbox. It’s basically the opposite. We’re doing the work to have a better experience on the Xbox family, then we will improve the PC version at the same time.”
Again, no release date has been provided for console, but more details will be provided at a later date.
- RELEASE TIME: For Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on Steam and Microsoft store
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is one of the most anticipated games of the year and it comes out on Windows 10 just next month. Not only that, but it has also been announced for a release on Steam with VR support a year later. Although we now know that the game will be available on Steam, as well as Windows 10 and Xbox Game Pass, lots of console gamers are asking the following question: will Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 be on Xbox One?
There are numerous editions you can buy for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and this has resulted in confusion about its premium airports. This confusion isn’t ideal when the game officially releases on August 18th, but so far the previews have been extremely positive.
While Windows 10 and Steam users can look forward to buying and playing it next month, will it eventually be available on Xbox One?

Will Microsoft Flight Simulator be on Xbox?
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 will not be on Xbox One when the game launches for PC on August 18th.
However, Microsoft Flight Simulator will be on Xbox One and maybe Xbox Series X at a later date that hasn’t been revealed.
It’s been confirmed in the past that the ambitious simulation game is coming to the current-gen console, but no release date or window has been revealed leading to suspicions for 2021.
As for what has recently been said about Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on Xbox One, you can find a quote from Asobo Studio’s lead software engineer, Martial Bossard, down below (via Windows Central):
“The Xbox will help us to optimize the product, so it will also be a benefit for PC. There is nothing PC will lose from the Xbox. It’s basically the opposite. We’re doing the work to have a better experience on the Xbox family, then we will improve the PC version at the same time.”
The above quote has resulted in Windows Central suggesting that Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on Xbox One will be treated like a low-end PC.

More details about Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox will be delivered at a later date, but this’ll probably happen after it successfully launches on Windows 10, Xbox Game Pass, and Steam.

Flight Simulator is Microsoft's 2020 take on its long-running airborne sim series - and it's coming to Xbox consoles.
Releasing first on PC in August 2020 - including as part of your Xbox Game Pass subscription - an Xbox version of Flight Simulator was confirmed when Flight Simulator was first announced during Microsoft's 2019 E3 conference.
This page explains everything we know about the Xbox release of Flight Simulator so far - including what will be shared between the two versions.

What we know about the Flight Simulator release on Xbox consoles
While the PC version of Flight Simulator released in August 2020, the Xbox Series X and S versions will arrive in summer 2021 - around a year later - and that it will be part of Xbox Game Pass, just like on PC.
The console version will offer 'the same level of depth as the PC version', according to the official announcement, and have the same World Updates and themed DLC as the PC edition, as well as support for 'additional peripherals' from third-party partners.
Only the Xbox Series X and S versions were confirmed, despite a (now deleted) post on the official support website earlier in the year stating it was 'coming to Xbox One at a later date', and that lead software engineer Martial Bossard originally explaining to Windows Central how development on the Xbox One version would benefit PC development.
'We are trying to have the best visuals on every single platform, and it's another layer of optimisation,' he explained.
'By the way, the Xbox will help us to optimise the product, so it will also be a benefit for PC. There is nothing PC will lose from the Xbox. It's basically the opposite. We're doing the work to have a better experience on the Xbox family, then we will improve the PC version at the same time.'
For those investigating their Flight Simulator options, we have a planes list and airport list for each launch edition, a list of Flight Simulator Achievements and what to expect from Flight Simulator's Xbox version. Then, when you start playing, we have explainers on weather and liveries, multiplayer, using autopilot and sim rate, and how to use the game's equivalent of photo mode with Active Pause.
Will the Xbox version of Flight Simulator share Achievements or progress with the PC version?
Though there have been few specifics of what the Xbox version of Flight Simulator will feature, Microsoft has confirmed it will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title, the 'initiative by Microsoft to combine platforms of gaming, letting Xbox gamers play on PC with any first-party Microsoft Studios published game that is digitally purchased and vice versa'.
This means purchasing it once on PC (via the Microsoft Store, not Steam) will grant you an Xbox One version at no cost.

Meanwhile, the Xbox One and PC versions will also share Achievement lists - there won't be separate listings.

All this suggests the two versions are one and the same, and are likely to share progress between the two - but of course, without an announcement saying as such, there is no confirmation as yet.
Until then, the PC version supports the use of an Xbox controller - allowing you to get a taste of the console experience for those who prefer to play with that control scheme.
