Mad Catz Announces the Launch of Saitek Combat Pilot

Mad Catz Interactive, Inc., announced today the launch of Saitek Combat Pilot, a unique, flight-based MMO (massively multiplayer online) experience which allows simulation enthusiasts from around the world to gather, interact and fly with each other as they engage in simulated air combat.

Published by Mad Catz and developed by the Company's internal ThunderHawk Studios, Saitek Combat Pilot represents the first truly interactive, multiplayer air combat simulation built around Flight Simulator X from Microsoft (sold separately).

"Saitek Combat Pilot offers members the chance to train for and participate in combat flight operations under the most realistic conditions possible. Flight simulation enthusiasts are among the most passionate and discerning consumers in the world and we believe they will embrace Combat Pilot as the ultimate multiplayer flight combat experience," said Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz. "Our Saitek brand is synonymous with flight simulation and we will continue to support the flight simulation community with hardware and software offerings that simulate reality. "

A true multiplayer experience, those entering the world of Saitek Combat Pilot can create, join and fly in virtual squadrons with friends and wingmen, perform check rides and training, take part in weapons training, participate in dog fights and fully engage in combat operations and much more.

Looks like it'll be subscription based, about $11.99/mo.

Hmmm...more interested in Star Citizen and Squadron 42 at this point :/

But thumbs up on their attempt into the flight sim MMO genre. Hope it turns out good.

I hope it's not just built on top, as good as FSX is it also lacks a lot.

They will have to make a really good go at this because competition is quite strong (Eagle Dynamics with it's DCS series (which is in my opinion THE simulator to beat) and Flaming Cliffs).

EDIT: after having another look at this, yep not even close
