You have this backwards.

It was Apple that announced no more firewire interfaces on their
hardware. There is no active development of firewire support for macOS
whatsoever. It was Apple that basically shut down any future for
firewire by announcing their complete abandonment of it. Nobody makes
new firewire audio interfaces now, and that's entirely at Apple's

On Linux, where the support for firewire audio interfaces has been a
bit patchy, things are actually slowly improving, and you will
continue to be able to use firewire audio interfaces  on this platform
for as long as you wish.
