I heard news that Microsoft will be switching to a Chromium based browser. I heard the news not to long ago, and thought of making a post here asking XGen what the future of Adobe flash based video games, including Stick Arena, and others. I delayed making a post about it for a bit, but now I think I will ask them.
I do not know whether Microsoft switching to a Chromium based browser will lead to abandoning Adobe Flash faster than the plan was to before. Before Microsoft and other’s plan was to eliminate the use of Adobe Flash some time in the year 2020. I did not know if that implied the beginning, or ending, of that year.
I heard that Chrome enables you to run flash based programs once you enable them per web page. However, I do not know if Microsoft switching to a Chromium based browser will make all of them decide to remove support for Adobe Flash faster. Given that browsers such as Chrome and Edge already ask you to enable Adobe Flash every time you use it, it already implies that they really already wish to remove support for Adobe Flash. They look like they already wish that Adobe Flash lost it’s support already, but they need to phase it out slowly. Firefox, and I’m sure a bunch of other browsers too, already have Adobe Flash disabled.
Before this news, there already was talk of video games made by XGen needing to switch from Flash to another format. Now that Flash may be unsupported earlier, I wonder what the future of video games made by XGen will be.
