TLS did not break even at the box office. You have to triple your budget WW to do that. TLS cost well north of 200 million and only netter 450ish, with only half of that coming domestically. That is not the numbers Fox was looking for and it basically snared the franchise for a while. That's why they had to start scaling things down with spinoffs.
The plans for spin-offs started even before X3 was released. Its not like they canceled a X-Men 4 movie in 2006/2007.

Yeah like dumping the OT cast for FC cast and pulling a Star Trek to the modern-day films.
