Andover Continuum End Of Life Rumors

I have heard multiple times that Andover Continuum Access Control hardware and software systems were going to be made end of life, or were made end of life recently by Schneider. I am not working for and Andover dealer, but have some customers with a video system and they are still running Continuum and are looking to sink a ton of money into additional hardware. Does anyone have information they we can confirm/share with our customer?
