Video Game Accessibility Waiver Expires

Oh many of you..I totally forgot about this. Thankfully Blue's News is on top of the situation.

The International Game Developers Association has already shared some information about how the CVAA will affect games released in 2019 and beyond, and the organization says it’s working on a more in-depth explainer as well.

The requirements themselves are outlined in the full legislation, specifically in section 14.21.
