Cubase 12 needs live net connection?

Hi I’m using v8/ 11 with the dongle. I don’t have net in my studio. Can I use v12, or does it require to authenticate the copy via online.

How is this going to effect me going forward with longevity of the dongle version working for many years to come? I’d hate to be forced to buy 12 and get net setup in my studio to continue to use cubAse. I’m a long term customer been upgrading to every version since 5. Also I need v8 to keep working as I have 32bit vsts that I need to keep using.
