According to leaks, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 has been confirmed for release on next gen consoles Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S!

Xbox Series X|S release leaks
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 has teased console release since beta, and a new leak points to a year one release on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
While we can't take this leak as a confirmation, it suggests something that players have been hoping for since MSFS was first delayed.
And that's being able to play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on next gen console with the Xbox Series X.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 has been available on PC since 18 August, and even then after months of alpha and beta stages.
Despite this lengthy period, the game still hasn't reached console!

Players have been expecting console release for months, and if new leaks are to be believed, it's coming in the first year of the Xbox Series X and S.
Next gen consoles will soon shake the gaming world up massively.
The Xbox Series X will be the first next gen console to hit the market, releasing on 10 November. Sister console Xbox Series S will also arrive the same day.
Meanwhile, PS5 will be following a staggered release date schedule with some regions getting Sony's console before others.
Thus far, we've had no reason to believe Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 will ever land on PS5 - but if these leaks are correct, the Xbox Series X runway is clearing shortly.
