Sony does not 'force' Sigma to do anything.

The two companies have no relationship.

Unlike Tamron, Sigma does not license Sony lens mount protocols - so they do as they wish for better or worse.

If I were to really let my imagination run wild, I could dream up some conspiracy about Sony intentionally disabling Sigma lenses in firmware.

Of course, this would likely harm Sony sale as well, with users delaying, or refusing to upgrade bodies so they can continue to use there Sigma lenses. So, it's pretty difficult to think that scenario would ever be reality.
