Sony just announced a new A-mount adapter that supports screw drive lenses, where's the Nikon AF/AF-D Z adapter?

Well, actually, for some people it IS too late. For me the decision was made, the die was cast the day in November 2019 that I went to a local camera shop and traded in all my Nikon gear as I was getting ready to move to Sony...... At this point, am I going back? I hardly think so!
I know a lot more that have left and came back to Nikon as well. It is the way of the world when there is choice.
 
I am not ruling out that possibility -- returning to Nikon at some point -- however, since I no longer have any Nikon lenses at all, adapters would not be of any concern to me now. Nothing to put on them! :D. There are a couple of my former lenses that I do miss, I will say -- some of those old lenses are real gems. However, that's all water over the dam now. At this point, of course, I would simply move forward with new native lenses. That said, Nikon would have to have some pretty spectacular and compelling lenses and reasons for me to switch systems again....

I agree with Thom. Nikon needs to look to the future right now.....not the past (lenses). I want Nikon to be a viable competitor to Sony and Canon. Right now I don't know if they have waited too long to get in the game...........
Yup, I think too many folks still want them to be the corner camera maker—producing what a small, vociferous, minority (think they) want.

It would be very clever if such an adaptor were made available as I can't see where the focus motor would go
