Yesterday marked the release of the "Carbon Cub Deluxe" DLC for Microsoft Flight. Oddly enough, it also marked the day multiple developers at the Vancouver development studio were reportedly laid off and future work on the title was put to a halt.
Here's the official statement from Microsoft:
Microsoft Studios is always evaluating its portfolio of products to determine what is best for gamers, families and the company, and this decision was the result of the natural ebb and flow of our portfolio management. Many factors were considered in the difficult decision to stop development on "Microsoft Flight" and "Project Columbia," but we feel it will help us better align with our long-term goals and development plans. For "Microsoft Flight," we will continue to support the community that has embraced the title and the game will still be available to download for free at http://www.microsoft.com/games/flight/.
