As I recall, Empathy feels the world should be fixed. This would be
nice, but it is a long ways off. So, yes, they have switched the
default IM to empathy, which has no real plans to support encryption
in the foreseeable future (xmmp crypto someday?), but Pidgin/OTR will
remain installable. Of course, soon enough, video/audio will be
working in Pidgin.
