Of course, according to Sigma, that will magically triple to 60.9mp in the foveon alternate universe.

Just crawl through your list, BC, tick the check-boxes "fake sharpness", "wrong colors" and "high noise", so we're done and can go on.
My bet is, before 2021 no one will be able to buy it and with Panasonics sensor math (S1 96MP, S1R 187 MP) and bodies available this April, it already is a low-res story and will highly depend on Foveon haters like you to keep up the memory of a nice idea Honestly, I would not be surprised if it gets cancelled over the years...
However, a more interesting bet will be: who makes it first to market? Sigma's FF Foveon with the usual delay of 1-2 years or Pentax 85/1.4 (https://www.dpreview.com/articles/0215547449/cp-2019-a-look-at-the-pentax-85mm-f1-4-and-kp-custom) ? This could become a close call.
