It doesn't make sense for Sony to get out of APS-C mirrorless. Both they and Zeiss have relatively recent lenses for APS-C as well as the new ff lenses. It would have been crazy to spend the $ developing these and then get out of the format. You can bet that Sony wouldn't want to alienate the Zeiss partnership that is working well for them.

It doesn't make sense while the smaller sensors are much cheaper to manufacture. The situation could change in a few years if the extra cost of the FF sensor becomes negligible.

There is as significant step up in $ for the FF bodies and lenses. It is a different class of camera and it would be out of character for Sony (who tend to have models for every possible niche) to get out of APS-C mirrorless.
