Actually the pattern for FFG once they stop printing out a game is to slowly have it die, and then delete the forums, at least in the past.
This is why you see no Midnight RPG forum, No Marvel Heroes forum...
And even may not create forums for older games of theirs when they change over to a new forum format,
For example you don't see a forum for the Twilight Imperium RPG, or the Thunder's Edge game, or Twilight Imperium v1 or v2 (though theoretically I suppose you could post in the TI forums as I don't believe it's specific in edition). Of course I don't think they've ever made a game this controversial before in regards to fans, so who knows.
However, if they follow precedent however, the 2e forums will probably disappear sometime in the future.
