Will Adobe continue to support the .eps file format in future application software?
I have heard rumors regarding this issue and would like clarification. Thanks
Where did you hear those rumors?
Collegues. I will pass the correct information along to them.
Maybe your colleagues can tell you how they got that information.
I have not heard those rumors, but Microsoft stopped supporting EPS in Microsoft Office four years ago:
"Because of a security vulnerability in EPS files, Office 2019, Office 2016, Office 2013, Office 2010, and Microsoft 365 have turned off the ability to insert EPS files into Office documents. This change is effective as of the April 11, 2017, security update."
Thanks for the clarification. So the eps extention will work with Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop in the future.

Neither Ton nor I said that. What we said is that we had not heard those rumors and I added that Microsoft has stopped support for EPS due to unnamed security issues. As users, we do not know what Adobe will do until they announce it.
Whether Adobe decides not to support .eps in the future is probably not as important as realizing that for all intents and purposes .eps is an obsolete format. It has not been updated since the 1990s and has never had the full integration with InDesign for imported objects that .ai or .pdf has. Is there some specific reason that you still need to use .eps?
