Microsoft has confirmed that they are planning to bring VR support to Microsoft Flight Simulator later this year through a post-launch update. Early discussions surrounding this hinted that this VR support was exclusive to the HP Reverb G2, though Microsoft has confirmed that this is not the case. 

While the VR launch of Microsoft Flight Simulator will coincide with the release of the HP Reverb G2, support for VR will extend to all Microsoft Mixed Reality VR headsets. However, additional VR platforms/headsets will be supported through post-launch updates. 
   
When Microsoft Flight Simulator launched on August 18th, the game will not support VR headsets, though the game will support TrackIR and a wide range of flight sticks at launch, which is great news for longtime Flight Simulator enthusiasts and newcomers alike. 

VR support for Microsoft Flight Simulator will arrive this fall on PC. In the future, Microsoft Flight Simulator will also release on Xbox platforms.
