Is there any announcements or indications on whether/when there'll be a new 3?

The Play:5 was lacking one big network development that the Play:3 already has - 5 GHz wireless support. Of course, the Play:5 has other advancements - the microphone (which looks to be part of some future voice control feature) could prompt Sonos to keep the same timetable (obviously that's something that still needs significant development)... gesture controls instead of buttons probably isn't as big of a deal.. But as I've already expressed, I wouldn't expect a new Play:3 until at least next year. But only Sonos will know for sure what's coming and when.
