An entry on the official Adobe Fireworks blog based on the Max conference these days:

The future of Adobe Fireworks.

Today (05/06/2013) at the MAX conference, we announced a new generation of our tools, now known as CC (Creative Cloud), including Photoshop CC, Dreamweaver CC, Flash Professional CC, Edge Animate CC, and others.
As you may have noticed, updates for Fireworks CS6 were not included.

In recent years, there has been a growing number of matches in Fireworks functionality with existing Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as the new Edge Reflow.
At the same time, our development team switched to creating more modular tools and services to help you perform specific tasks in web design.
As a result of the above, we decided not to upgrade Fireworks to CC; instead, we focused on developing new tools for our customers.

Although we do not plan to further develop Fireworks, we will continue to sell Fireworks CS6, as well as make it available on Creative Cloud.
We will release security updates as necessary and fix bugs.
We plan to update Fireworks to support future versions of Mac OS X and Windows.
These plans may be adjusted as more specific information becomes available on future versions of Windows and Mac OS X.

We understand that Fireworks has one of the most dedicated communities on the Internet and that these changes will be difficult to accept.
The goal of reorienting development is to create a new generation of task-focused tools to help our customers create great web content.

Development team.
