Seeing as we have a C3 beta date.

Construct 2 will continue to receive updates as they have been for the foreseeable future. Exactly as has been in the past, if critical parts break they will be fixed and updates given to everyone free of charge.

@Tom This is something I wish had been covered in the original blog post for Construct 3.

It's good to hear that updates will continue for Construct 2. I think that if you made that clear in the Construct 3 announcement, the community wouldn't have responded so negatively, since they would have felt secure that they wouldn't be losing Construct 2 when Construct 3 comes out.

Will Construct 2 licenses still be for sale after the release of Construct 3?

What's the deal with Construct 2/3 Business Licenses (another point notably missing from the announcement)?

The ultimate question. I just hope C2 will be supported forever.

Imagine that they say something like this:

Tom
"C2 will become open source and will be maintained by users".

Honestly I don't know what to make of that. I've been here less than a year and the only thing I can think of is Rojo and Rex are geniuses and if they continue to contribute as much as they already have :)

I'm sure as long as Scirra is doing updates there will be an option to purchase the license for C2. Once updates for C2 stop, I can see it going the way of the original Construct.
