What's Next?

Dev AndrewGarrison  11 months ago

Your commitment and love for SimplePlanes never cease to inspire us! We see it in every comment, every discussion, and we can't thank you enough. We would love to keep releasing endless free updates for SimplePlanes, but we haven't for a while now. Why is that? We've been busy on multiple projects as you know and we've also started on our next major project. Sadly, this means that SP updates will continue to be on pause for the foreseeable future, though we will roll out updates to fix critical bugs if necessary.

You might ask "is the next major project SimplePlanes 2?" Great question! That's a very strong contender, but there are other project ideas that we are very excited about as well. Part of the team has been focusing on research and development and rest assured that once we have something more substantial to share you can expect more frequent updates from us.

While we understand that this may not be the news you were hoping for, we're really excited about the next chapter and we hope you'll share our enthusiasm. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and as always, thanks for playing!

    Wait!

    There seems to be some confusion about the meaning of this post, so before you comment read this quick rundown of the key points:

    • We've recently been busy working on multiple projects
    • SimplePlanes updates will not be in development for the foreseeable future
    • This is because our focus has shifted to our next major project/projects
    • While a potential "SimplePlanes 2" is certainly a possibility, we can't guarantee it for now
    • There are also other very exciting ideas that we're actively looking into, but we can't share them right now
    • We'll keep you informed as soon as we have something concrete to show off that we're confident we can deliver on
    • Many of our developers are now (and have been) working on core technology that will be used in future games
    • While we value your feedback, I'd like to reiterate that we are not developing updates for SP and this post is not the place to suggest features

    It would be really cool if it you could create massive ai dogfights for example in a sandbox mode you could make 2 teams of ai and make massive and chaotic dogfights but then there would be the issue of my game being reduced to a sideshow but it would still be fun

    A good idea for a future project could be an engineering game, with high physics, gears, electricity, pistons

    Getting the feeling that JuNo new origins is the SP2 as guessing from the trailers
    you can do about everything you can do also in SP if not even better.
    JUST MAKE SP PLANES COMPATIBLE WITH JUNO!!

    @DOYOUMIND Flyout is obviously still an unfinished work actually
    I have no idea why it sells for such a price for its quality isn't that good now
    Maybe after a discount or several updates it will be able to "kill" simpleplanes

    Could you make simpleplanes xbox compatible? It would allow some people who don't have a decent PC to be able to run higher detailed planes and better graphics

    @WNP78 Hey thank you for the reply. This game and how it works has so much potential, it’s nice to know that it’s just going to be forgotten. I’m still amazed at the designs I see.

    It's a pity, but all things have to come to an end. Plus, as an Unity game, SP is pretty moddable,and games like Doom show how long modding can keep a community alive.

    If you consider how many years SP has been around for, then you might find it already surpassed many other games in terms of development. SP is not dependent on an active server except for the forum, so players may continue. For any computer software, the development cycle needs to come to an end. Especially, working on ancient architecture is far less efficient than making something newer and better. That appears to be same between MSFS 2020 and 2024. So, I am optimistic about the project anyways.

    @WNP78 dude, I’ve been playing for years. You can’t take this away from me man. You can’t give up. I’m not really happy for you guys giving up on my favorite game. There’s so much (sorry) damn bugs on mobile. Ya’ll can’t leave us. What the (sorry) hell?

    I'm worried about the future of this game and Juno, not because of lack of updates but because of the whole unity charging per downloads thing
