Originally Microsoft planned to release the Microsoft Flight Simulator expansion earlier this year alongside the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator for the Xbox Series X / S. The new expansions teaser trailer showed an aircraft carrier that players might be able to use next year.
Actual reason behind the delay is the concerns about the COVID’s delta variant and sudden raise in COVID cases. Jackass Forever is also delayed to 2022.
