In brief: Absolutely
With time, because this virus mutates continuously, variants will develop which are resistant, usually to one or more of the medications being taken.
This is one of the reasons that several drugs are used in combination. It makes it less likely that resistance will develop, but this always remains a potential and presents a major problem in management of HIV disease.
