Have my eye on both the 5DSR and the 1DX II.

Both, though, have been out, what, a few years?

What's the likely release cycle on these things? I'd hate to purchase one and see a successor released next month or two.

Anyone in a similar boat? What are your thoughts?

5DS(R) is cheap right now. The 5DS and 5DSR can both be found at great prices on ebay right now if you're OK with a grey market import. I got a 5DS for $1240. I think the R is about $300 more.

1,240$ for a 5DS with Canon's best image files must be the best value offer in the camera industry right now on a pure picture iq/$ ratio (I'd still wait however, these offers will still be around for Christmas).

Don't wait. I think the last 5DS(R) has already been made and their selling out stock. The new high MP mirrorless will be out soon and that will probably be the only high MP body going forward. This will help sell the new big $$$ RF lenses. If you want a 5DS(R) on the cheap, better buy it now.
