Another nice teaser video.

So is this the same marketing BS they are doing with the new Top Gun movie...

Release late Q2 2020 (and then more like Q4)?

(or the 787 or the release of the 737-MinLav?)

I don't know. I've only seen it announced for 2020 without any specific date, month or season. So technically it can be until 12/31 (and this is a leap year so they have one more day :) )

The last development version I've heard was released is pre-alpha. So they still have to go through alpha, beta I, debugging and beta II before launching. I don't see it coming as early as Q2.

Updated list of official videos with the 7th Feature Discovery episode: Multiplayer

Episode 1: World https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZL5PCZO8cc
Episode 2: Weather https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8TGT87Fxyw
Episode 3: Aerodynamics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bw-opH4f8Qg
Episode 4: Cockpit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLcSNppK14k
Episode 5: Soundscape https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySEWs6luN7Q
Bonus Christmas video: Let it snow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQFmpakz9Yo
Episode 6: Airports https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10P21oFOxAU
Episode 7: Multiplayer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezcSVFQdc5g

Related to Episode 7, which looks very nice, I wonder about other on-line interaction features as live ATC (i.e. not AI ATC) and shared cockpit (multiple persons operating the same plane at once, like pilot and copilot)

Another question... as you can see in the episode, the tool will not only show the on-line players, nut also the real flights that are taking place at the moment in the area. I wonder how is a simmer playing multiplayer going to do to land in very crowded airports like Heathrow, or how in-sim ATC (wither live or AI) is going to look like in such places.
