Rumors of their death have been spread for years. Most of it is just click bait articles that are written to attract views and don't have any firsthand knowledge of the company.

But I agree that their situation does not look good. Odds of pulling out are not great.
I think a better analogy is the running gag on SNL Weekend Update during the original cast period. "Generalissimo Francisco Franco is reportedly still dead...."
