Ricoh GXR system discontinued in the UK (and maybe elsewhere)

In an interview with Amateur Photographer UK (AP UK) at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, a Ricoh UK director told AP UK that the Ricoh GXR system is discontinued in the UK market and perhaps elsewhere as well. This is not an official announcement that the GXR system is discontinued world wide, but the writing's on the wall.

After the Pentax-Ricoh marriage, it was inevitable that the combined company with a fairly small marketshare would not be able to support multiple camera systems. The Q system seems to have found a niche among some affluent buyers in Japan and other high-tech hubs in Asia (Hong Kong, etc) but it doesn't look like the GXR system found a niche anywhere?
