Universe is done after the next wave of deluxes (with Hotshot and Ratchet). There's nothing past that to cancel since everything else is already out.

A fair bit of it may be retailer response, too. The movie stuff sold so well that a few toys that were intended for Universe ended up being sold under the Movie banner instead. The walmart-exclusive deluxe Big Daddy, Crankcase, Fracture, etc., are examples of this, as are some of the Toys R Us exclusives like Mudflap/Erector and not-Tote. So Hasbro may have canceled the last Animated voyagers because retailers simply want new Movie stuff.
