I think most everyone summed it up pretty much. I'd just say that to me it's also Jon's obsessive desire to be the next Springsteen, Dylan-type guy, and that's in no way aligned with the younger version of the band that made them a household name. They have turned into nothing more than the Jon Bon Jovi solo band, but using the Bon Jovi brand as the marketing tool to keep the album sales going and the concerts full. It doesn't take much looking thru the various social media pages that 95% of the fanbase today either still love JBJ because of the crush they had on him 25 years ago or have no sense of quality music, they just praise everything that it put out because it has the Bon Jovi name on it.

I'd expect that one these days they will get Richie back in the band for one last big farewell tour/album, and then call it a day. Idk how much longer Jon can think anyone wants to listen to his vocals live. Jon can then hang out selling mediocre wine with his son and doing the JBJ cruises, and stuff like that when he chooses to.
