I don't know if it has been announced anywhere before, but I came across today Monsieur Bauza's twitter channel, where he posted some photos of a new, 2 player variant of 7W that he's been working on recently under codename "Duel". I like the idea, because however I like playing 7W with only one other person - controlling together the common "third player" - I think there is still room to develop the concept further.
Here are the published photos:

When I play 7 wonders 2p we always play two boards. It makes for a better variant.

I pass X first round while he passes straight across.
second round he passes X across and I would pass straight across.
third round same as first round.

Makes for a much better variety and interesting game.

I hope it is an expansion! It almost looked like a separate game, though?

Yep. It hurts the mind a bit. I added this variant in my fan expansion, 7 Wonders: Empires, and called it "7 Wonders: States". The gimmick for mine was creating partner boards to go with the official boards, such as Alexandria II (Library of Alexandria) or Athens (partner of Olympia).

Still, these photos are very interesting. It looks like a 2-player card game. My wife and I are definitely in!

Mr. Bauza confirmed, that it will be a standalone game. Actually the components look like a pocket version of 7W for me.
