When Adobe and Figma called off their merger in December, it left Adobe without a UI design tool. The creative software giant had effectively abandoned Adobe XD before closing the merger, halting individual sales of the program and making no major updates.

With the acquisition cancelled due to regulatory pressure, we were wondering if Adobe XD might get resurrected. But Adobe has now ruled that out, and it seems there are no plans for a replacement either (see our Adobe software list to see the main programs that Adobe currently develops).
