Probably?

It will be the same socket. Might require a BIOS update using a 2nd gen CPU first.

If you're spooked by that rumor that MSI wasn't going to support 3rd gen on their 400-series boards, that was apparently false info from a clueless customer service rep.

Right now there is no reason to think any 400-series board from a reputable brand won't support 3rd gen Ryzen.

exactly, i seen a story going around where MSI was looking to stop supporting some of their older AM4 boards but they backtracked on that decision

There was never any actual evidence they were looking to stop supporting the older boards. Someone asked a customer service peon who reads from a script if their 400-series board would be supported and it blew up into a furor over nothing.
