Last week, Paramount delayed a number of films on its 2021 line up including Top Gun: Maverick. The Tom Cruise starring blockbuster has been moved from its Thanksgiving weekend release slot to 27th May 2022. The movie delay is due to concerns in the spike of Covid cases leading to lacklustre box office sales.
Because of that, the Top Gun expansion pack for Microsoft Flight Simulator has also been pushed back. In a statement on the Flight Simulator website, Microsoft explained that the downloadable content (DLC) will now be available alongside the movie so there’s a considerable eight month wait for fans of the game.
While fans will be disappointed by the Top Gun delay, there are other updates for Microsoft Flight Simulator on the horizon. The next update launches tomorrow (September 7) and features substantial improvements for Switzerland, Austria, and Germany.
Competitive multiplayer will also come to the game later this year via the free Reno Air Races expansion pack. It will be the game’s largest expansion pack since it launched and allows players to compete against friends and other pilots in competitive races.
