Probably not a good enough seller. Isn't FN dropping the 9mm Hi-Power, too?
I remember there was a big scramble for HPs, ten or twelve years ago, because Browning announced they weren't going to import the HP anymore. All it meant was that there would be no more Browning-marked HPs. Maybe FN won't make any more HPs in Belgium, but they will be made in the U.S.? A .40 would be nice, if that's the case.
