Adobe announces plans to stop boxed sales of its Creative Suite software

Adobe announced today that it plans to stop offering boxed versions of its Creative Suite software. Instead, the company will follow the growing trend of only offering its professional software via online download.

“As Adobe continues to focus on delivering world-class innovation through Creative Cloud and digital fulfillment, we will be phasing out shrink-wrapped, boxed versions of Creative Suite and Acrobat products,” an Adobe spokesperson informed TechHive vial email earlier today.

Retailers have reported May 1 will be the cut-off date for boxed sales of Adobe’s Creative Suite software.

Consumers will be able to choose either the download any of Adobe’s Creative Suite apps from their website or access them via a monthly subscription.
