So every time I'd watch X1 or X2, it would be kinda depressing to think that all those characters have nothing much to look forward to, and that Professor X's dream of coexistence eventually comes to nothing, in this timeline.

Judging by the most recent comments though, it seems that DoFP is set post-X3 after all.
if the idea is indeed that after this film everything that happened in X1,2 and 3 would be changed then that would be very tricky to explain at the end of the film and would make complications to have to explain
