EC2 instance types T2, M4, R4: are they getting close to end-of-life?

0

AWS announced end-of-life date for instance types t2, m4 and r4 affecting may RDS services at the end of March 2024.

Can we expect a similar announcement for EC2 instances? How instance type lifecycle usually works with EC2?

Thank you.
