  • Microsoft’s Top Gun expansion has been postponed to 2022 yet again.
  • The postponement aims to match the Microsoft Flight Simulator release date.
  • The spike in the Covid-19 case and new variants also contribute to the new release date.

Paramount has announced that the long-awaited sequel of Top Gun is set to delay for another six months. Fans have been subjected to delays as a result of Covid-19 and new variant concerns.

The expansion was anticipated in July and later the last quarter of the year, according to Asobo Studio.

Plans for Top Gun expansion

At the moment, there are no known plans on what Asobo Studio plans to add to the Top Gun expansion. Only jets and a few locations from Top Gun: Maverick have been disclosed. The expansion for Windows 10 PCs, Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X/S, and Steam are expected to be released alongside the movie.

Fans are disappointed

Although the events leading to the postponement are inevitable, fans are still disappointed with the pushback. The timing of the latest release fell perfectly during the Thanksgiving season, and fans were hopeful of gifting and being gifted.

The studio has yet to divulge more on what the expansion will entail, but a teaser released earlier was enough to keep users on high anticipation mode. 

The game was aimed at landing from previous releases, so it will be interesting to see what is new with this release. 

Twitter users had mixed reactions to the announcement. One user even said they were getting in the way of his need.

Another said that their mom did not take the news so well.
