I stumbled across this recent interview with Alexander Pfister in which he briefly speaks on his first expansion to Isle of Skye! Apparently it is already finished and he is just waiting on production. It doesn't seem groundbreaking, but it sounds like the few mechanics he spoke on could definitely add to the game in a positive way.
Quote:
MM: With the success of Isle of Skye, and the possibility of a Kennerspiel des Jahres win, are there any plans for an expansion?
Indeed. We finished the expansion already, I'm not sure when it will be produced. In the expansion we will be able to travel within our kingdom. Roads become even more important. And we have contracts, like bringing whisky to a lighthouse. Even if this sounds like a lot going on, we tried to keep it as simple as possible. Playing time will not increase much as we wanted to conserve the strength of Isle of Skye: An easy and fast game.

Delivering whiskey to a lighthouse? There is going to be a significant increase in boating accidents.

The lighthouse keeper is on strike until the whiskey arrives, so we are saving lives.

A lot of these promo tiles have scrolls or other good features. Will adding all of these to the mix adversely affect non-scroll/non-promo tiles?

i was really hoping that the expansion would essentially just double the game length. me and my playgroup want to have the islands be at least 2 times a big. and have like 4 extra turns.

Any news on this?

This really should be a no-brainer of a purchase for me.

The design has been ready for over half a year now.
It cannot be that hard for a KSdJ winner to get an expansion published you'd think?

It was on hold for some time, but now we are working on it again. We also got some feedback from the publisher which we want to include. Can't say anything about release date yet.

I hope you do include the promo tiles, they sell second hand for £20+ when they rarely appear on BGG Market or ebay.

Hi

I would love a sixth player to be added...if possible as this will make it worthwhile my family purchasing the game. Looking forward to purchasing and playing it one day when the expansion is complete - hopefully with a sixth player?!
Cheers John

Feel free to add a 6th player to your game - just use the extra screen that's in the box and create another starting tile and an Axe tile from card board. But I doubt that we'll have any official 6p support any time soon.
