Those that know cannot say. Those that say cannot know. Adobe enforces a strict policy forbidding people that have knowledge about unannounced products from leaking information about those products.
When Captivate 5.5 came out around the middle of this year there were some grumblings about the fact that it was not a free update from Captivate 5.
At that time Adobe made statements to the effect that they were moving from an 18 month development cycle to a 24 month cycle that involved a major version change (e.g. version 5.0) every second year, with.5 "mid-cycle" releases in between.
"This launch marks a major change to Adobe’s product release strategy for Creative Suite, the industry-leading design and development software for virtually every creative workflow across print, video, mobile and online media. Adobe now plans to have milestone Creative Suite product introductions at 24-month intervals and – starting with Creative Suite 5.5 – significant mid-cycle releases designed to keep the worldwide creative community ahead of the latest advances in content authoring."
Based on those timeframes, given that Captivate 5.5 was released about 6 months ago, you would be wise not to expect a Captivate 6 release until around the middle of next year.
Wouldn't it make sense that it can't come out until Creative Suite 6 comes out? Which I think should be sometime in the next few months. If Captivate is going to be bundled with the eLearning Suite, it's gonna need the newest version of Photoshop etc, so I would expect Captivate 6 to hit about the same time as CS 6
