Why? Wouldn't Pentax want to make and sell their own lenses?

That was the only answer they could give to "hey, third party makers are abandoning the K-mount and it's all your fault! What are you going to do about it?" (not an actual quotation, please read the interview). The full answer (and now I'm quoting) was:
"We cannot manage what third-party manufactures plan and produce, so we cannot reply to this question fully. However, we are ready to communicate with them."

Of course they will continue to make their own lenses.
