Leaving aside the Tom Warren information, another rumor gives force to the possibility that Microsoft Flight Simulator hits Xbox Series X / S this week: the official website of the GameSpot store in Ireland has recorded the game’s release date for June 15, that is, next Tuesday. The portal has quickly removed that information from the tab, but some users have been able to capture it and you can see it below:
