Future of Reaktor

After seeing what happened to Absynth, I am worried about Reaktor. I know they won't kill it right away but it is slowly getting there... No latest M1 support, The GUI is clunky, and still no VST3. There is no clear path as to how they will accommodate the user library stuff if they ever update with the latest 2022 bells and whistles (HiDPi res, MPE, scalable and resizable GUI, Blocks with 'proper' patching, etc) I read somewhere that they will update Reaktor and Battery in 2023 but I have no trust. It looks like they do not make money with synth-type ensembles like how they do with preset, sample and loop-based packs for Kontakt... Hence Kontakt 7... This is also holding me back from updating to Komplete 14 Ultimate. To me, Reaktor is the only software that has a distinct sound and character just like hardware. I hope it survives for another 50 years :(
