When Game Maker Studio is released (TBC), it will allow developers to make and release their games independently from YoYo Games.
This third tier of GameMaker explains the renaming of Pro to Standard, and appears to allow what many have been demanding since the ability for cross-platform.
Russell Kay then suggests it's still months away

@All – This video was made using an earlier version of 8.1 (hence the Game Maker and the Pro) with some home cooked goodness – it is a hint of things to come and we are sharing it with you. We cannot set estimated dates yet so do not get too excited; more announcements will follow in the future, it will be months though not days or weeks.
This is a separate product(s) not the next Standard or Lite.
