Flight Sim World Closure FAQ

FSW Closure FAQ
30 April - DTG Cryss   

Good Morning,

While we will not be elaborating on the Closure Announcement regarding Flight Sim World. We've been looking at some of the questions you’ve raised and want to answer them for you now.

First, we want to stress that if you own Flight Sim World, it will always be in your library now and after 24th May. It will not in any way be removed from your Steam library.


What happens to Flight Sim World if I already own it?
As stated, Flight Sim World will remain in your Steam library, available to play in its current format.

Will the sim be taken off sale?
Yes, and we’re working to the date of 24th May 2018. We want to give anyone who does not yet own a copy of the sim enough time to get a copy and keep it safe in their library for future play.

What will happen to any add-ons?
Add-ons will also be removed from sale, but any you own will remain in your Steam library.

Additional Questions and Answers:

Will you hold a Sale before the 24th May?
We would like to do this. We're working on how and when. The core sim and our own add-ons are reasonably easy to schedule for a sale (see below for a little more information). We are discussing with our third party partners about possible discounts on their add-ons. We do not own their add-on content, they do.

Will Multiplayer still work?
Yes, for anyone who owns a copy of FSW.

Will Workshop still work?
Yes, for anyone who owns a copy of FSW.

Will the SDK remain available?
Yes, and we'll retain the website with information about working with the SDK.

Will the Pro Mission Editor remain available?
Yes, for anyone who owns a copy of FSW.

Will the Steam forum still be available?
Yes, if you own the sim. The community hub will be viewable if the sim is in your library.

If I have a code for FSW, can I redeem it after the 24th May?
If you bought that code from Steam or another official retailer, yes, though we recommend redeeming codes before May 24th.

Planned Mission Pack Giveaway
We briefly mentioned sales in the FAQ, we have plans to make all the mission packs created by the FSW Mission Team (The Last Frontier, Epic Approaches and The Spanish Job) free to download prior to Flight Sim World being removed from Steam as a thank you to everyone who supported FSW up until this point (more information on this will come prior to May 24th).
