Autodesk makes 3ds Max and Maya Indie available worldwide

Last year, Autodesk launched Maya and 3ds Max Indie, reduced-price subscription to the tools for indie devs earning under $100,000 a year. However, it was only available in the US, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and Australia.

On 7 August 2020, Autodesk will extend Maya and 3ds Max Indie to another 26 countries across Europe, Asia, and South America.

The indie subscriptions will cost around $250 a year (the exact fee depends on a country).

SuperData: “AAA publishers are doing just fine without E3”

With no E3 this year, platform holders and Ubisoft still generated massive viewership numbers on Twitch. In fact, “decentralized announcement events” that big companies had to run this year brought more viewers than E3 2019 did. This is according to Carter Rogers, Principal Analyst at SuperData.

Sony, for one, saw their June 11 PlayStation 5 reveal watched by 1.5 million people, while the recent Xbox E3 2019 briefing was watched by 0.9 viewers.
