I doubt if there will be an upgrade for the Pro-1 soon.
Looking back at PRO9500 Mk1 released in 2007, replace by mark II in 2010, replace by ( a lot better) Pro-1 in 2013.
The Pro-1 is significantly better then pro-10 or pro-100, so I do not think that rebates for those are an indication of Pro-2 release soon.
The Pro-1 was released in 2011 ( http://www.dpreview.com/products/canon/printers/canon_pixmapro1 ) so I'd expect this to be updated somewhere in this year at least, if not in the upcoming months.
The CR2 rumor about the update was in Februray last year: http://www.canonrumors.com/2014/02/new-pixma-pro-printers-around-the-corner-cr2/
I used have an Epson 3800, a brilliant small footprint A2 printer but it required black ink switching between glossy & matte which consumed some time and ink. I have given up any hope on Epson on that and just try to see what Canon might have coming out next. Yeah, the Canon's is A3 but that's good enough.
