SharePoint designer and its  life can never end, if you are one of those who have been using it for designing sites here is bad news for you, Microsoft has discarded SharePoint designer 2016 so there is only supported version for SharePoint 2016 is SharePoint designer 2013.
 Ideal environment for Microsoft SharePoint designer is - ultimately first you get SharePoint 2016 and have windows server 12 r2 or windows 2016 and database sql server 2014 and finally you can have old SharePoint designer 2013 that you have been using  for SharePoint server 2013 sites.
As Microsoft announced So SharePoint designer is being removed from SharePoint 2016 but info path has been clubbed for  consultant to design any UI using InfoPath form designer as traditionally  it’s been used for it.
But when you spend time with technology so you get hands on and develop skill set which helps anyone to work with that technology easily and smoothly- there are number of people who has been attached with SharePoint designer technology so Microsoft says – anyone wanted to use designer for SharePoint so they can use SharePoint designer 2013 earlier version of designer with SharePoint 2016 so if you have installed SharePoint 2016 on premises version then you can easily use old SharePoint designer 2013 version with SharePoint 2016
Ideally you can design best workflow as you have been designing it with earlier workflow engine in 2013 you also can tweak with master pages that you designed in earlier SharePoint designer version now you can enhanced them too.

There might be some feature they don’t work of SharePoint designer 2013 while working with SharePoint 2016 but ultimately you can use design manager,  vss tools to manage master pages and other pages. Microsoft might release some more updates regarding this and you need to upgrade the entire mechanism.

SharePoint Designer 2016 is Dead:

1)      SharePoint designer 2013 is supported with SharePoint server 2016 so no more SharePoint designer 2016 for SharePoint server 2016
2)      You can use Visual studio as SharePoint designer 
3)      InfoPath 2013 is still supported with SharePoint 2016 if you had designed UI in InfoPath 
       so these are supported  with SharePoint  2016

So final line is SharePoint designer 2016 alternative is SharePoint designer 2013 and InfoPath 2013 because InfoPath is supported as of now.

Sharepoint designer 2016 is being removed but design manager is there
Microsoft SharePoint designer 2016 is not being released but design manager is there, animated illustration depicting info about SPD
