IGDA halves subscription fees following CMP split

The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) has announced that its annual subscription fee is to drop from $100 to $48 this year, as part of a series of changes to the structure of the organisation.

The move will make membership of the association significantly cheaper and is expected to attract new members - but one of the most popular benefits of membership will also be going, namely the free subscription to CMP's Game Developer magazine.

Game Developer was provided free of charge to all IGDA members thanks to the close relationship between the organisation and publisher CMP, which provided management services to the IGDA until the two parted company last month.

The IGDA is now self-managed, and the reduction in the cost of membership is expected to be only the first of a number of changes at the organisation - which has recently been making headlines with its Quality of Life campaign, focused on improving working conditions for game developers across the industry.
