I think they already did.

The D850 is undisputedly the best non-gripped full frame DSLR and the D500 is the best aps-c DSLR out there. They have no need to outdo themselves on a hill that they are already the kings of.

It depends on what Nikon's vision for their future holds....  If they want to go firmly into the hybrid camp between video and stills, then both the D850 and the D500 would be on the block as they have shown with the D750.

It's almost always better to replace the leading model while it is the leading model than to wait until sales start lagging and you start getting a reputation as an 'also ran.'
