"During my current travels, I missed an interview Masaya Maeda gave in Japan about the 7D’s successor. Below is a translated part of the interviewthat talks about the EOS 7D Mark II. It does reaffirm our thoughts that the 7D Mark II will enter new territory.

Thank you for the link. I did miss that one but ...

And while we are, of course, developing its successor, it’ll be one that incorporates a certain number of innovative technologies. We will not be putting out a product with merely better specs, but one that has evolved into new territory. But then again, we’re not talking about something a long time from now either."

that is not necessarily incompatible with the most recent interview. There will be an "7D MkII" (that's your link and is also re-stated in the most recent interview), then it will be the end of the line. Likewise there may be a D400, but it will be the last of its kind (assuming Nikon is thinking along the same lines as Canon).
