I am not aware if Developer Studio is going away, I have recently upgraded to 18.05 (9.1.05) and it has the Developer Studio 9.1.05 as well.
coming to second part, Learning Java will help you understand better the APIs, Integration and plugins etc.
You posted this in the wrong Product Group. This is the Footprints group.

Moved. I haven't heard anyone say the Developer Studio is going away. The Java has to do with the underlying technology.
Check this link, Yes possibility is that Developer Studio will be there in Remedy 9.5, but for 18.05 we have Developer Studio.
Not sure if 18.05 and 9.5 is same or not, may be some one from BMC can share the feedback
