Hip takes on Just Flight in US

Hip Interactive will publish Just Flights products in the US, the two companies confirmed today, which will now see the Cambridge-based developers full range of titles hit America after an apparently successful initial shipment.

Just Flight, the sim specialist responsible for add-ons to Microsoft Flight Simulator such as Combat Flight Simulator and Flight Simulator 2004 — A Century of Flight, admitted today its relief at finding a successful route to the lucrative US market.

âWe have had a few forays into the US market in the past, but they have all ultimately been unsuccessful,â said Just Flight head Andy Payne. âThis time round we have set our stall out to market our products stateside and work with retail — as a consequence we have seen excellent sell in and sell through of the initial range and will now roll out our full catalogue. This is great news for our consumers, retail and distribution partners and especially our development partners. Redback and Hip have worked very hard and the benefits are now for all to see.â

Aside from the Microsoft Flight Simulator releases, Just Flight is famous for the Ubisoft-published WWII dog-fighter IL-2 Sturmovik and the scintillating Microsoft Train Simulator.
