Apologies if this topic was discussed before:

Since its introduction, Foveon kept its pixel count low (if you disregard the x3 claim). My question is why Sigma doesn't design and manufacture a Foveon sensor with true 24-36M pixels for any of its cameras?

Because nobody makes true 24-36M pixel color sensor.
