I am not sure if there is a future but I know is not going anywhere anytime soon. Animate is used a lot for basic mobile games, as well as for basic 2D animation. Adobe is still releasing updates and incorporating other key items to it in order to keep it a float. Now with Adobe Character also Animate can do a few more extra items and the fluency between Animate and Aftereffects is really good for giving your animation a bit more. So I do not know if their is a future for it but it's capabilities are still pretty good even tho there is other software out there that can do the same like software Creature or Toon Boom.
