My instructor for robotics told me that the CBCv2 is probably not going to be used next year. Is that correct and if so what will most likely be used to replace it?

Your instructor is correct; KIPR announced several months ago that the CBCv3 would be used next year. I don't know how much info I'm authorized to give right now, but it was stated by a KIPR official on a semi-public Facebook that it was planned to use an FPGA, like the XBC. I suspect that more info will be released by KIPR at GCER if not sooner.
