I know everybody is rooting for Hoenn, but I'm still wondering.
There is no info at all at this point. Only the people at Game Freak and Nintendo know, and so far, they aren't talking much about it.

And given that we've only seen multiple regions once (in GSC), it seems unlikely. Though, to be far, gen 5 is all about upsetting the status quo a lot. For all we know, it will take place in a new region, because why not?

On the other hand, the last time we had "sequels" (being G/S/C) there was some region hopping. I wouldn't be surprised to see in start in a region and then have a "return to Unova" thing happening.

I think he might've meant that he would rather replay Hoenn in the eventual 3DS remakes of Ruby/Sapphire and not on the DS.

I could be wrong though.

(I want to replay Hoenn on 3DS.)

Has water been matched with every type, except fire? Water/fire type in w2/b2, make it happen.

The entire series is one line of sequels. The only difference is that the remakes happen around the same time as their concurrent generation. Essentially, the timeline goes like this:

RSE -> FR/LG -> DPPt + HG/SS -> BW -> BW2.

(This is based upon the events that happen in FR/LG that relate to RSE, as indicated by some of the plot points in them. There is no stated gap between them, but it stands to reason that RSE takes place either just before, or overlaps into, FR/LG. HG/SS and DPPt seem contiguous because of the TV report in the beginning of DPPt mention the Red Gyarados. BW and BW2 should be set after them, barring another coinciding remake, namely RSE)

Unless one of the new formes for Kyurem happen to be Water/Fire, this isn't going to happen. This is still Gen 5; you don't go introducing new pokes in the same generation. That breaks game compatibility.

The only other way this could happen is if they give some other pokémon a new forme, and then that one happens to Water/Fire. But there's no news of this, so...

I wouldn't go ruling out new Formes for other Pokemon just yet. Deoxys got Speed Forme in Fire/Leaf, and Rotom got his extra Formes in Platinum. Shaymin too. Pretty sure none of those were announced when their games were, and were all revealed for events later. Game Freak could still hide a new Forme for someone else in B2/W2 and not announce it until later.

I don't think it's likely, though, looking at Gen V's monsters. Unless they give Keldeo or Genesect a new Forme, I can't see any of the other legendaries getting one, and none of the other Pokemon seem like they'd fit getting one.

Unless they decided to give one randomly to Stunfisk to make him not so stupid.

Supposedly, the Ruby and Sapphire items you find in the Sevii Islands are supposed to be related to the Red and Blue Orbs from Mt. Pyre in Hoenn (some speculate that after Kyogre and Groudon are dispatched by Rayquaza, the orbs were damaged or altered into the Plates). It's a stretch, I know, but it's the only link between these items. Since the Orbs are intact in RS, they should be the first form of the two.

I vaguely recall a character in FR/LG hinting about one of the events in RS, but it's been a while since I've really played it. I would have to confirm it with a text-dump. I think it was one of the Fame Checker dialogues.

Like I said, it's not written in stone, but there are some minor hints pointing towards RS taking place first. There is a somewhat detailed timeline of the games on bulbapedia, though.

Until Game Freak releases an art book with a fully comprehensive (and totally official) timeline, it's all merely deduction and speculation.

You shut your whore mouth. Stunfisk is cool.
