Well not quite
- The upcoming Studio is "GM8-based Studio"
Then GM9 work will start and from then on we will be releasing (at the same time) Lite, Standard and Studio (for the forseeable future) that is the plan, so basically GameMaker will be moving to be a cross platform product, remember GM9 will work on PC and Mac (for the Maker portion) and Studio will allow targeting to other platforms (from PC or Mac) .
We are also looking to add in Linux as both a target platform and a Maker platform, but there is little reason for us to do that as a business just now (only the geek in us is driving this one, so I will not promise it).
glad to hear this.
I haven't been going through all the posts in this topic but I am confused about the release date. I was told a few months ago the release would be mid-2012, but on the site it says late november. Which one is more accurate?
Also for those people thinking the price is going to be $199-$299, then i doubt it.
After the release of GM:HTML at $199, then i reckon a price of $499.
