not directly, they have commented on their ideas of "future alphas" on this page

http://kotaku.com/the-prisoners-might-b ... -472674615

some (if not most) of their ideas have already been put to use (alpha 9) so, there is not much left....but it is interesting to note that 10 will be their last "big update".

This is very disappointing, I love the anticipation and knowing that the game is always improving. I would honestly pay $5/month for a new and improved release each month.

They say that 9 and 10 will be big updates, not the last big updates. It's important to remember that this interview took place before A9 came out, so they didn't know what way development would turn.

"Alpha 9 and Alpha 10 are both going to be pretty big updates. Beyond that point, our plans get much more vague."

seems like the last one to me. (beyond that point, our plans get much more vague)...im not trying to start a fight or anything, but that's how I take that comment.

I know it was before a9, but this is the only real info we have (if you know of more please post links) on the subject of their plans.

They say that the updates after Alpha 10 are more vague...because it's too far in the future for them to say. Alpha 11 might be a huge update, or they might fix it up all pretty like (like Alpha 8).

No way it's the last big update though. They haven't even started thinking about the campaign yet, which the game will certainly have. There are so many features not yet added, not even designed yet, as well. So I wouldn't worry!

OH MAN IM SO EXCITED! Seriously I've been like stalking the forums for the past week trying to figure out when the update is out :D Right now it is very hard for me to build a prison of more than 30 prisoners or so due to laundry constraints. I anticipate that they will increase the amount of extra uniforms given every time a prisoner is brought in, right now the ratio is less than 1:1 I would expect it to be at or just over that ratio, also I am really hoping that the laundry cart speed is increased, as right now it takes over 8 work hours to get laundry done for a 32 cell prison.

/nod. There is too much in the works on their "to-do list" to call 10 the last big update. They have understandably built padding into their schedule so that if 10 turns out to be a hot mess they can spend 11/12 fixing it before moving on.
