The wait is over, the date is set! After months of hints and “sneak peeks”, Adobe has just confirmed they will be officially launching Creative Suite 6 on Monday, April 23rd, 2012…
The Creative Suite 6 Launch Event will be webcast worldwide on Monday at 10am PT / 1pm ET and 5pm GMT – and naturally it will be recorded so you can watch the video on demand thereafter.
Naturally there are a lot of details left to unfold but here are some of the earliest… Be sure to tune in here:
And the invitation itself:
Join us for a live webcast April 23 at 10am Pacific Time (see the hour in your timezone) to hear how Adobe is reinventing the creative process and be the first to experience the latest innovations within Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Creative Suite 6.
Importantly, this means time is running out to take advantage of the money-saving grace period for a free CS6 upgrade when you buy CS5.5 now – because as soon as CS6 is released, Adobe will stop selling Creative Suite 5… and it’s very likely to be less expensive to upgrade to CS5.5 now (with CS6 gratis) than up to CS6 later.
It’s also the last chance for anybody still running CS2 to upgrade, due to Adobe’s “three versions back” limit! For owners of CS3 and CS4, the recent upgrade policy changes mean that you have only until the end of 2012 to receive discounted upgrade pricing to CS6, and after that it will be full price to anybody not on CS5.
