What will happen with the Visual Studio's reverse engineer (model from database) wizard, will they bring it back or leave us without it? I'm still not getting comfort how to work with existing database in Asp.Net Core! The Asp.Net team is making us Visual
Studio developers miss all the awesome features and stuff Visual Studio has, we can't scaffold Controllers when we create a project without authentication, can't create Views from controller actions with right click, etc. With one word, we who develop with
Visual Studio are missing a lot of Visual Studios power. So does anybody know what will happen in the future with us?

The approach in EF Core is code first so no model from the database wizard. To use the model first with the wizared, you should use EF6.

But what with my existing database?? Should I write big database with code when I already have it? Shouldn't they make stuff easier?

you can check the roadmap:
you can also follow the issues.
note: as .net core is focused on cross platform (and visual studio is not cross platform), you can expect command line tools to be the solution (with VS adding extensions to call the tools.)
the sqlserver data tools team has decided (currently) not to to enter the E/R / ORM tools space anymore, so ORM designers will need to come from another group. the EF group is a natural choice, but its small and may take awhile to get to visual designer
tools. if you need these you should stick with EF6 and its current stack.
if you don't use code first (like real database developers), you try dapper.

They should do something for visual studio developers, we are losing sall our privilege!!! I think to go back to Asp.Net MVC 5 just cuz of this!

In the roadmap they say they are planing to implement
Database schema management
But the rtm version is out and still no sign of it!

VS Tooling is being worked on at the moment. We agree that it is critical to have a wizard style experience for reverse engineering. You can track the work here https://github.com/aspnet/EntityFramework/issues/5837.
