Adobe Creative Suite 6 products will continue to be supported and available for purchase, but Adobe has no plans for future releases of Creative Suite or other CS products. Adobe says the company will focus software development efforts on its Creative Cloud offerings instead, moving forward.
Adobe Creative Cloud is a membership-based service that provides users with access to download and install Adobe creative desktop applications; game developer tools and integration with the Adobe Touch Apps.
Creative Cloud membership costs $49.99 per month for individuals based on annual membership. Existing customers who own CS3 to CS5.5 get their first year of Creative Cloud at $29.99 per month.
More than a half million paid members, and over 2 million free members have signed up for Creative Cloud since it was launched in April 2012.
