Microsoft Axes Microsoft Flight Development

After only being available for five months, free-to-play flight sim Microsoft Flight will no longer be supported with further development.

A Microsoft spokesperson announced the decision to Gamespot, confirming that both Microsoft Flight and an unannounced Kinect title have been axed.

"Microsoft Studios has decided to end development on Microsoft Flight and Project Columbia," the statement reads. "As a result of this action, some positions within the development teams have been eliminated. Microsoft human resources is working with the affected individuals to find new roles within the company."

"Microsoft Studios is invested in British Columbia and still has several teams, both in Vancouver and Victoria, which will continue to produce the best entertainment and gaming experiences possible."

Microsoft Flight came under fire from many critics and pundits for its controversial revenue model: an incredibly limited free version supplemented by extremely pricey downloadable planes and maps - not to mention a slightly unconvincing flight model.
