Its nothing to do with plans per se, but funding. They said they have enough materials they could add to keep developing (based on their estimates) for at least 10 years.
This got twisted into the oft quoted "10 year plan"
But it all depends on funding at the end the of the day. FD are a business, and DB has a passion for this game, but he needs to pay his staff to do the work. So, as long as FD keeps generating money, they can keep developing for 10 or 20 or 30 years... although the latter would be unlikely anyway, anything over 10 years is unusual in the gaming industry (with obvious exceptions).
While we all want content to come quicker, there isn't much FD can do to make it happen. You can't just throw devs at a project to make things happen quicker without some form of impact, one of those being financial.
