Will the CRJ be renamed in game?

As many of you know, Mitsubishi has taken over the CRJ program and as far as I can tell from their instagram account they are renaming the jet to the MHIRJ, a terrible name. If this is accurate and a name change does occur, would the in game name change? Flightradar24 has already changed it to the Mitsubishi CRJ and many of us are quite upset. I feel many people would not appreciate the name change and I would certainly campaign against it.

Can you also provide a link with an article about the acquisition of the CRJ program? Thanks! 😁

Maybe in the future they rename it. I don’t see why they’d keep the old name over time as it’ll be inaccurate and more people would realize that as time goes by.

I think its because Mitsubishi didn’t made the aircraft so it doesn’t belong to them

Not in my lifetime… Please.

Neither did Airbus make the A220 originally, yet the name change, so in that sense, a name change could take place and would suit the aircraft better now that it is a part of Mitsubishi.

As intriguing as this is, I sincerely doubt the devs will do this. It’s like the devs naming the A220s the C series. It’s the one and the same…

Airbus did help with most features of the aircraft during it’s production.

The CRJ has been out for a long time now.

I really just don’t want it changed in game

They could

It’s already the Mitsubishi CRJ and I hope it stays that way

Wait this is true? I saw a post earlier today on IG that FR24 had displayed the CRJ as Mitsubishi CRJ and I thought it was a bug or some mistake by FR24. Wow I didn’t know the CRJ family was taken over by Mitsubishi

Now that I know about it, it’s sad that the CRJ has been taken over. The name MHIRJ sounds TERRIBLE and I would certainly be disappointed if the name will be changed into MHIRJ in IF.
