According to a chat through the official HTC live chat, it seems that the HTC Sensation bootloader will be unlocked! HTC said to stay tuned to their official channels for ongoing updates on how they will be implementing this policy.

We will keep monitoring this topic and as soon as there is something new, we will update you.
