Why Don't We Just Skip Full Frame and Go Straight to Medium Format?

So medium format camera technology exists and is simply making full frame bigger. It's less noise, higher dynamic range. So why don't we just skip this full frame nonsense and go straight to medium format? It's not like it's difficult, it's just a bigger sensor.

I'm sure Sony could do this and release a 150 megapixel medium format camera and and lenses and replace the full frame A7/A9 series. It would have lower noise than any full frame camera. It's not a matter of cost, it wouldn't cost much more to make a medium format sensor compared to full frame.

If you are carrying a full frame camera, it's not like you are going for a small camera. Might as well as get the best image quality and go medium format.
