I think that was just a problem with signing a contract with a label, wasn't Touch Yello ready for primetime a year or two ago?
Anyway, if they do make a second remaster series, I hope those remasters will be properly done (like the first 6?), too many such projects involve over-compression and ramping up the loudness to the point of clipping being audible. I know Boris would never do such mistakes (just look at spectrograms of The Eye or calculate album gain, not a trace of loudness war participation), but as far as I know Boris wasn't the only one who worked on the remaster series.
Pretty sure Boris does the remastering himself. Julian would know.
The first 6 were difficult because they were so old. The next ones should be easier to remaster.
Everyone talks about how long it took for this album to come out. But Yello released more between The Eye and this album then they ever have.

I don't think Yello has slacked off a bit. They are working harder then ever. I didn't even include Dieter's solo projects.
