While Java isn’t going away anytime soon, I think it’s safe to say yes. Google has officially supported it for two years now, and is heavily investing in it.

I don’t think Kotlin will ever drop support for the JVM – that was its original use case and still its main one. If anything it will just continue to add other target runtimes.
