From the information that I saved for kits that I manage, it seems that myOrigins 1.0 was introduced in about the middle of 2014, to replace the old Population Finder. Then, myOrigins 2.0 was introduced just this year, around April (3 years later).

I'd say that the chances of a myOrigins 3.0 being introduced anytime soon are likely pretty low. We can always hope that FTDNA learns from the 2.0 update, and will be able to provide a better version next time. Perhaps they will address the topic at this year's 13th Annual International Conference on Genetic Genealogy in Houston, usually held in November.

I can't say I really had a problem with FTDNA's myOrigins 2.0 as it seems to be fairly close to what my family tree shows, give or take a few percent.

In any case, myOrigins 3.0 should be interesting.
