At comic con during an interview with mcavoy (in same room as Stewart,mckellen,fassbender and singer) he seems to believe there will be another FC film and as he has read the script so there must be a door open for the younger versions of the characters, I think the 3rd will be the last for FC though
X1 (First Film) - Establish world; present/near future
X2 (Sequel) - Character development; some time after first film
X3 (Sequel) - Attempt to end series as trilogy; some time after second film
XO:W (Prequel) - Origin for Wolverine; fifteen years before first film
FC (Prequel) - Origin of the X-Men; decades before first film, several years before previous prequel
TW (Sequel) - Wolverine; present day/some time after third film
DoFP (Sequel) - Ten years after events of previous sequel/ten years after second prequel

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.
