If you want to be entitled for new versions, all you need to do is to stay current with SnS (Support & Subscription), which is way less expensive than a new purchase.
You can find the SnS end date in your My VMware portal, and a SnS renewal (without a reinstatement fee) is possible anytime before the current SnS expires.
