i think 512GB cards will be here by the end of the year, but i don't know if they will stay with CF interface as it seems that they are coming to the end of what the format will cope with, i know they are talking about the XQD format but my money is on the future of SD.
Perhaps they will be here, but they didn't go ahead and create XQD or CFast (CF replacement from same standards group) on a whim. SD cards just won't cut it, especially for top end photography that needs high write speeds to keep up with the high burst rates. Think sports & action photographers and the like. They need cards that can quickly clear the buffers of their 10+fps cameras. I highly doubt SD cards will ever become the standard format on the top tier (I'm including 5d3 level in here as well, possibly 7D replacement as well) cameras.
