Microsoft Train Simulator 2 Full PC Game Overview
Microsoft Train Simulator 2 Download Free Full Game (MSTS 2) was a train simulator developed by Microsoft Game Studios until it was postponed indefinitely due to the closure of ACES Studios.
MSTS 2 was first announced on January 19, 2007 and originally scheduled for release in the last quarter of 2009. The program's lead designer, Rick Selby, also announced in late 2008 that it was to be compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. It was to be the successor to Microsoft Train Simulator and was being developed by Aces Studio (Microsoft Game Studios), known for their long line of Microsoft Flight Simulator games, as a part of the «Games for Windows» initiative. The simulation was to use a modified version of the Flight Simulator X software platform. However, with the closure of Microsoft's Aces Studio on January 23, 2009, development of this simulator was immediately halted.
First attempt: 2003–2004
An earlier attempt at building a second version to Train Simulator was originally announced during the Spring of 2003. Many improvements were attempted to make with procedural switches and walking passengers and was again going to be developed by Kuju Entertainment, who were the original creators. On May 15, 2003, a preview of the title was shown at the E3 Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles to demonstrate much of the new work, such as its new routes, rolling stock, and other features including animated people & functioning turntables.

However, only three months later into the Summer on August 18, 2003, Kuju had handed the project over to Microsoft Game Studios and they would eventually halt the entire development by Spring of 2004 as the following statement from Microsoft confirmed.
Much of the former development team from Kuju later established Rail Simulator in order to continue development of their own simulation platform. Its first version was later released in October 2007, Later Railworks in June 2009, then Railworks 2 Train Simulator in October 2010.
Second attempt: 2007—2009
The re-launch attempt at Microsoft's second version of the «Train Simulator» project was officially announced on January 19, 2007. This time around the simulation was instead being made in-house by Microsoft's ACES Studio, which was most known for its successful Microsoft Flight Simulator series line, as a part of the «Games for Windows» initiative. The simulation leveraged most of the existing core components of Microsoft Flight Simulator X's platform, thus providing an entire earth model in which to play from, and was planned to be compatible with both Windows Vista and Windows XP. A post on the 'The Little Wheel Goes in Back' blog, written by one of the developers, confirmed the working title was 'Train Simulator 2'. Microsoft Train Simulator 2 Free Download PC Game.
Microsoft's first demonstration of Train Simulator 2 occurred on August 25, 2007 at the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany and released an official press kit which included several in-game visual prototype images, asset renders, and two videos. One of these videos presents a brief demonstration of the simulation's ability to model the entire planet's track corridors, reproducing a similar concept in Microsoft's Flight Simulator series, with global rail network data for anyone to operate their trains around freely without limits. The data would have also been available to route builders for modification of any kind to suit their modeling needs anywhere in the world. As opposed to starting an entire route from scratch, this would require more or less simple cosmetic details & object placement.
Despite having the name in common with its predecessor, backwards compatibility with the first version of Train Simulator would not have been possible due to the completely different base platform used for development and programming designs between the two versions. The original Microsoft Train Simulator uses routes based on individual levels which are loaded separately within the application, whereas this version would have introduced the entire world as a single game playing area where railroad corridors would have been based on their actual real-world locations just as in Flight Simulator.
