Autodesk to do away with discipline specific Revits

Autodesk Revit Verticals to be End-of-Life and Replaced with Revit 2017 "One-Box"

Revit logoAs of the first customer ship of Autodesk Revit 2017 software, the Revit “verticals” (Revit Architecture, Revit MEP and Revit Structure) will no longer be sold separately.
These products will be replaced by Revit 2017, the “one-box” version of Revit containing the capabilities of all three verticals currently available in Autodesk Building Design Suite Premium and Ultimate, Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite Ultimate, and Autodesk Revit Collaboration Suite.
Autodesk subscribers to the Revit verticals and suites containing the Revit verticals as well as owners of perpetual licenses with a current maintenance plan will be migrated to Revit 2017.
Affected customers will receive an operational communication informing them of this change.
