Well, Mark, considering they have done so well on the NGX, and their Technology is up to par, I think it would be really time efficient if the went with some coding from the NGX.I definitely think the reason the NGX took so long to develop is because they built it ground up.
A good guess would be 12 months, but nobody really knows.

If you get a chance head over to fsbreak and listen to the podcast with the PMDG Team it's a great interview. PMDG said that alot of the technology break throughs they developed for the NGX would port to the 777. Robert also said he didn't anticipate future projects would take as long as the NGX. The built the NGX from scratch! i wish they would do a behind the scenes movie to clear some of the mystery up

Wow! A 777 Thread where the OP doesn't get attacked (or suspected as a troll due to low post count)? On topic: I would hazard to guess there will be not an official estimate until closer to release. Also, I do not think this community knows enough to even give an educated guess. Maybe we'll hear about a beta test then we can specualte, but as of right now, with the information we have, there is no way of knowing. TL;DR: Your guess is as good as mine ATM.

We all know PMDG laid the NGX release date out from day out and met it shooting par for the NGX course, so I'm sure any day we'll here about the T7 date.... Just hold your breath, keep holding. OK, the real part. PMDG as to my understanding (not speaking for them) dose not work to a timeline but rather work for quality products. Quality vs Time can be unpredictable and almost 100% sure they would/will not say even a rough estimate for two reasons, one to avoid the "it's XX-XX-XX date, where's the plane", and two not to rush themselves as again they don't work on a timeline. Sure PMDG can even provide a 3rn and 4th reason. One thing is almost certain is that it will not be long as the NGX as others mentioned why. I would love to have the 777 ASAP to start my long hauls flights back and after seeing the NGX I know it will be worth whatever wait. Maybe ask again when first WIP preview drops!

Wow so many responses...thanks everyone - I'll hold my breath! And I agree with you VLJ510, I'd prefer Quality over Time any day. I'm sure once we finally hear about it (whenever that may be), the finished product will be on Final Approach

You trust Wikipedia? LOLYou know PMDG doesn't edit that right? So all of that info is just Joe making it up. For all we know they may have cancelled the 777 and -8
In wikipedia: In development As of August 2011, the company is developing two new aircraft for the product: Aircraft Planned Release Platform Bombardier Dash 8 EST 2013 FSX Only Boeing 777 Unknown FSX Only I hope 777 is first :) Glenn H

My initial hypothesis was that the 737NGX stuff was a load of B.S. and that they'd release the 777-X when they promised the 737NGX and surprise everybody; it didn't happen, but, I hope soon. I'd rather have another long-haul plane (and now with ultra-high quality) before another commuter.

Best case but highly doubtful would be T7 by the Holidays...! I'm guessing early to middle of next year though... Can't wait for the T7 but for now love playing with the baby 737 :)....! Whatever PMDG builds will be making its way into my hanger..!
