Hi, I have a next 13 project in production and im using pages router. Is it ever gonna die? I dont like the app router (yet, im still testing it)

i’m not a professional and i don’t have an exact source, but i did hear somewhere that they’re not planning to phase out pages anytime soon. at the moment, the pages and app router paradigms coexist just fine, although i have a feeling they might move towards the app router more in the future. for now though, i wouldn’t worry.

it most likely won't. like getInitialProps, which has been basically deprecated for a very long time now, is still working

as one last comment, i would say: don't write off the app router entirely. try it sometime in the future when it's in a bit of a better state, because i think once you get over the learning curve, the improvements are really worth it.
but to answer your original question truly, don't worry about migrating
