createClass is going to be deprecated in React v16 Are we left with stateless functional and react.Component only?

I am thinking for the time being to use only ES6 Class Component

class XY extends React.Component {}

way of creating components and not using the

const XY (props) => {

    return (<JSX/>)

Since I can use the state feature in the former in case I will need it later on, does anyone know any reason, drawbacks why should we use the latter other than it simpler structure?
