They have to follow market direction, the only format that seems to be eternal is 35mm. it's used in film industry too and now the digital video camera are using 35mm sensors.

35mm film is used in the film industry but the actual imaging area is much smaller than the full frame size, depending on the aspect ratio. For example the standard 1.85:1 ratio has a width of 21.95mm for the image after allowing for the film sprockets and soundtracks, giving a height of about 11.86 mm.

By contrast, a full frame still camera sensor is about 36 x 24mm in size. So the four thirds 21.6 x 17.3 (reduced to about 12.15 for the 16:9 ratio) is closer to standard cinema film than "full frame" is.
