Will Adobe ever have a true 3d Animation software i.e. Maya, Blender?

​I use Blender and Adobe CC...Blender is open source so it is free to any student who wants to learn 3D modelling, animation and a variety of other things. They are working on a new version of Blender that works in real time, I think it is version 2.8. It's not out yet but is very exciting for creatives around the world. I use Unreal Engine 4 as well, it is a game engine that is also free to use until you start making over $3,000 a quarter (or something like that). My point being, Adobe is a creative tool that I work into the workflow of all my projects. It plays nice and it is a product I feel good about teaching others.

Adobe AfterEffects has Cinema 4D lite included...

I've not spent any time with Maya but all the Autodesk software has free licenses available to educationalists...

Personally I use Trimble SketchUp for quick modelling (as well as it's massive 3D warehouse), free too, then add special effects with Cinema 4D...

I would rather pay for the Adobe product because I really enjoy keeping my entire project matriculating through the Adobe workflow. Also with the beta Adobe Fuse CC, the Creative Cloud is now giving you a great and easy human modeling tool.

Why pay for the Adobe product while Blender is free and up for the task.
