Actually, MS can and will. MS has abandoned the idea a new OS every so many years and is making continuous changes to Win 10. In fact, I'm amazed they even bothered to number it. They will still make their money because a Win 10 license is only for ten years, then one will have to shell out their shekels to renew it.
I suspect that Windows will be turned into an Azure-based subscription OS.

I've heard CS can be used on W8.1.

Yes it can. I've installed it on my 8.1 VM.
