Storyline Perpetual Licence
Jan 25, 2019
I'm getting that sinking feeling that Articulate have decided to abandon their perpetual licence in favour of the subscription based 360 offering.
There's been no update of Storyline v3 since Aug 2018 and the gap between Storyline v3 and 360 is getting wider.
Normally around this time of year Articulate have started to promote the latest version (v4). This year we're getting meaningless messages quoting "we're focusing on the overwhelming needs of our customers and adding new features to 360".... and those of us to prefer, or have to use, perpetual licences have been left by the wayside.
I wonder if anyone could give us a definitive answer as to whether-or-not 360 will be the only future option for Storyline? (I do hope not, but I suspect I know the answer).
I also wonder if there are other Storyline v3 users out there who are in the same predicament and have already started looking for alternative solutions? I see that Adobe are continuing to offer Captivate 2019 on perpetual licence, and some of the new features in that look pretty good, but what other options are people considering?
I’ve been a Storyline user since v1 and have invested heavily in licences over the years. I currently have 12 developers on v3. I realise that our licences will continue, even after Articulate have abandoned us, but eventually it’ll become a legacy product and we’ll need to look elsewhere.
I’d appreciate others thoughts.
