    I am currently learning about asset management things, and I figured out that there are three ways to manage assets (Addresables, Resources, Asset Bundles). There is a quote in SUMMARY section here that says: "We now recommend using Addressables for your projects."

    So, does Addresables are going to replace Resources and Asset Bundles? I am asking because I need to know which one to learn and utilize in my project.

    Neither of those called "deprecated" there.

    Well, before the tutorial there is a disclaimer that says: "PLEASE NOTE: this tutorial has now been deprecated. We now recommend using Addressables for your projects and will be providing more documentation and tutorials on this feature soon. In the meantime please refer to the Unity manual". I derived my statement from that disclaimer.

    No, you said they are called deprecated there. But this isn't true and misleading other people who visit this forum. That tutorial is deprecated nothing else.
