Microsoft closed down Flight Simulator developer ACES Studio, but Bit Tech reports the team have now begun to assemble around a new company named Cascade Game Foundry. It was found by ex-ACES designers Rick Selby and Kathie Flood, with the purpose of developing simulation games.
According to comments made in the official press release, Cascade isn't just going to focus on flights sims either. Flood and Selby are very much aware that the flight sim genre is their "critical foundation", but say the team hopes to expand into all manner of sims.
The plans look quite extensive too, with Cascade's press release making mention of train driving simulators, scuba diving sims, hiking sims and even mountain climbing sims set in the Andes. Ambitious, or what?
