I guess only nikon staff know and they don't want to risk the sack.

It seems a bit odd given that many MF makers are struggling or no longer exist. Perhaps nikon or canon think their expertise can pull it off. I believe the d800 sensors are stitched together from 2 small ones. So making a MF one would be perhaps twice the price. Which might mean a lot cheaper than the Leica S2 etc. However the d800 has economies of scale from a larger market.

Sometimes companies make prototypes to gauge interest.
