The team decided to form an independent company again.
Thomas Heermann, the Vice President of Automotive, Concept Design, and XR at Autodesk, revealed on LinkedIn Sketchbook has left Autodesk and launched a new independent company titled Sketchbook, Inc.
"Our team has been part of Sketchbook's past, we deeply value the legacy of the app and the loyalty of its fan base (though yes, we did get rid of the capital ‘B’ in the name). We’re going to build on that legacy, embracing everything that a sketchbook can be in supporting creativity, art and expression. We’ve got a roadmap of updates planned, many of which are based on requests from Sketchbook users. And some new ideas too, which we look forward to sharing soon," wrote the team.
"But first we want to make sure this transition is smooth for the millions already using Sketchbook on Android, iOS, Mac and Windows. The apps will move from Autodesk to Sketchbook in the platform stores over the upcoming days."
