The limit has been increased to 3000 for pro tiers. The catch is you will need to prefix your URLs with

Webhooks allow us to push data to you when it is added or updated. Instead of polling the API for changes, you can listen on your HTTP endpoint (Webhook) and we will deliver the data to you.
Check out the documentation here: https://igdb.github.io/api/references/webhooks/
Webhooks are only available on Pro, Ultra and Enterprise plans.
We added the
version_parent field to games which you can use to differentiate between version/editions and main games.
To filter them out, check out the example here: https://igdb.github.io/api/examples/#search-games-but-exclude-versions-editions
We added the versions/editions feature which allows you to clearly see the various release editions of each game and their features. https://www.igdb.com/games/assassins-creed-origins/versions
We have made this data available through our API via the game_versions endpoint.

Big news today, we’re starting a public changelog so you’re always up to date with all the updates, improvements and fixes that are made in api.
Even though we work on the api all the time, sometimes it may seem that not much is happening. This changelog is here to improve that very important part of the communication between you and us.
You’ll always receive an update when we change something, or if needed, all things we’ve changed is available on our public changelog page.
