Very likely

Okay, I made the jump from Pentax (K-5) to Nikon (D800) because I gave up waiting, but I think the Pentax answer is nearly inevitable now. This is not because Pentax really desires to make one, but because it's a function of necessity in the new market. Nikon and Canon now produce options like the D600 and 6D as specifically targeted full frame options to the consumer market and at the price point that would make possible K-5 buyers reconsider. So Pentax has to respond to this if there is ever a chance that they can regain even a reasonable margin of their former glory as an APS-C only line isn't going to attract a lot of newbies and you can only sell to your existing customer base for so long when it's not all that large to begin with.
