Ok, this is maybe too speculative, but hear me out. Once the DC-6 made it to PMDG’s Facebook cover, we only had to wait about a month for the release. Well, today, the 737 stole the spot on PMDG’s social media so… the math is simple… it will be out on time for Christmas… right? Right??
Let’s not jump to conclusions, but that’s exactly what happened today. PMDG published a stunning new image of the 737 for MSFS, arguably the most highly-anticipated aircraft yet for the simulator, and we know it’s expected to be released in this last quarter of 2021. It appears the stars are aligning for a very exciting end of the year for airliner fans.
We last heard about the 737 just a week ago, when the first cockpit images showed up in PMDG’s forums. Then, this week, Robert Randazzo made an appearance in an official Microsoft Flight Simulator Twitch stream to announce an official partnership with Asobo and Microsoft. Among other things, he said the 737 was getting ready to be released, announced that the DC-6 will be coming to Xbox next week, and even appeared to tease an unannounced future product… the Boeing 757!
Clearly, things are busy in Alexandria. Randazzo has said before that he planned to start publishing some videos about the 737, just as he did with the DC-6 leading up to the release. We’re confident that we should start seeing them soon, though it’s debatable wether they will be as useful as the ones about the DC-6. After all, the 737 is the world’s most popular jet airliner, and there’s plenty of videos and documentation about it.
In any case, all we have for now is a clear sign that PMDG is up to something. An official statement and release date should be out soon, so keep an eye out for further updates!
