That's the basic breakdown of the film series from X1 to DoFP. At this point, do you really think they're going to want another prequel? The series is a mess when it comes to a film release timeline. There's really nothing left to explore in the past. We know Jean, Scott and Storm are students that become X-Men. At this point, it's not something worth focusing a film on. We have the chance to start again with the future/present day. It'll be very confusing to most àudience members if they go to the next film and it suddenly takes place in the 70's or 80's when DoFP seems like it's going to wrap the past up.
But you have nothing to Go on when you say it will wrap up the past, you haven't seen the film, we know that young xavier is in a dark place and doesn't have any Xmen

There is many things I could say to back up my theory but I pretty much said them already in the past on this forum

Mcavoy seems to think there will be another and I imagine he has a reason to believe so, the cast are in contract for 3 films and this is film 2, there is big potential in a 3rd FC movie with cyclops and jean that singer would be crazy to ignore, and singer pretty much said in the past in 2011 in interviews about a 3 decade trilogy with the 2nd being set during Vietnam which is pretty much what we are getting in DOFP

Now that's only a few reasons why I think there will be a 3rd, but this is a sequel to both so I think its pretty even split in terms of how people will accept the next film

I mean its possible they may do it as another back and forth timeline thing
