Microsoft has announced today that its release of Microsoft Flight Simulator was the biggest game launch in Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta) history, and more than one million unique players have taken to the skies on PC so far.

The company also revealed that more than 26 million flights and more than 1 billion miles have been flown since the game released earlier this month, which is the equivalent of flying around the world over 40 thousand times!

Nothing more has been revealed about a release date for Xbox One / Xbox Series X for now, but Microsoft says it has "plenty more to come on our flight itinerary", including world updates, sim updates, and future themed DLC.
