Autodesk perpetual license sales to be cut off sooner than once announced

The following is a quote from Robert Green as posted in the “CAD Managers Unite” facebook group.

“Sale of new perpetual licenses for suite based products will now be terminated on July 31, 2016 rather than January 31, 2017 as announced earlier this year.”

Why are they backing up the deadline by 6 months? Sit tight, Robert has an interview with Andrew Anagnost, Autodesk Senior VP Industry Strategy & Marketing in an upcoming Cadalyst newsletter.
