No, they have not said anything like that. I agree. As @Laurana Kanan has been so nice enough to track: Fall 2017 patch was followed by Feb 2018 release of R&F. There was no fall 2018 patch (last one was July 2018) and then in Feb 2019 we had GS. Based on a lot of things now, I am feeling VERY confident that we have a Feb 2020 XP3 coming out, and that it will be announced later this fall. (November seems reasonable.) I think that the name will be some kind of play on the Skull and Mask/Terminal-Carnival 2 word theme. And will very likely include: Babylon (or maybe Assyria) Byzantium Ethiopia or Axum Maya Portugal and A Native American Civ (Navajo?) A fan request (Vietnam?) A South American Civ (Columbia?) As for features, plague or pollution of some kind is possible - and in general strengthening the economic (Corporations?), political (UN overhaul?), and general late game features seem likely.
