It's not wishful or hopeful

Petalpixel has announced there won't be a successor. Sad but expected. I wonder how low the price on the IV will go? That might be a smart move.

Petapixel doesn't make the 5D and so doesn't get to announce things.

They've reported a rumor that it's dead. It's not even their rumor. It's from Canon Rumors. This is a site, reporting on another site, reporting on what someone who has been termed 'a reliable source' has told them.

Wishful and hopeful thinking on your part. Lets face it, the 5D line is dead, and the R5 is now the new line. The sooner you accept, the sooner you will move on.

That said, my 5D IV will continue to serve me well for many years to come.

I'm 5-10 years removed from needing to upgrade again.  I suspect we'll have better information on any DSLR replacements by then, or without any, a better understanding of Canon's intentions.

No need to 'move on' 5 years ahead of time.  Especially based on something literally called 'Canon rumors'.
