What happens in game development with Flash after it is closed?
After 2020, Adobe stopped supporting Flash technology.
The question applies more to the games, not only browser, but also partly mobile, here it is.
1. What will happen with ActionScript? - it was quite a good game, including great online mmorpg.
2. Flash and Unity Web Player somehow linked? Both technologies are closed?
What is now more productive to do a browser based game (browser game can be transferred to the mobile/PC client)?
P. S: have Seen good examples with ActionScript browser - based game, but it is on this basis had and desktop, and mobile shell, which has run the game [Bit Heroes]. But AS goes with Flash, so the chances of something useful will drop.
Using Flash for game development as something strange in 2020. It's old technology, and closing once again confirms this. We will not go into the details that led to it, will be satisfied with the final facts.
Flash was, and even now you can, effectively to prototypicality games but do not develop to end-users. Though banal because there are difficulties with the support in browsers. For example, personally, I have banned Flash completely away from sin, and recommend doing the same settings in the browser to all my friends. But prototypicality in flash only makes sense if you know him well, and to teach for this purpose, it makes no sense, because there are more modern and relevant tools.
Browser games in 2020 can be developed in WebGL. Well suited for this Unity. In fact, Unity just focuses on cross-platform, so the same project you can build for different platforms without any problems. The limiter will only be a difference in target devices and ways of interacting with them (different screen sizes, aspect ratio, presence of mouse, keyboard, touch screen, sensors etc).

dropping support doesn't mean everyone will stop working

On the first issue - with actionscript there will be nothing.
Nothing has happened since 2006, and it is unlikely that it will happen in the future.

Failure Adobe support Flash means that there will be updates. The latest version will be available. And software this ugliness will continue to work.

After the closing, nothing will change - he died long ago as the unity web player.
Very for games. The only question in the engines. Raw PL is not for any games.

1. The quality of the product (the game) - does not depend on the programming language.
2. For browser games - any game-js-engine or any IDE export to the web platform.
Unity is the most logical choice for today to create beautiful games for different platforms.
