I suspected it for a long time, but earlier this week Joe Belfiore, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President for Windows, confirmed that there won’t be new features and enhancements coming to Windows 10 Mobile:
Of course we'll continue to support the platform.. bug fixes, security updates, etc. But building new features/hw aren't the focus. 😟 https://t.co/0CH9TZdIFu

Belfiore went so far as to admit he’s switched across to Android, primarily due to the ‘chicken and egg’ situation around application availability on the platform, but consumers and businesses alike will continue to receive security updates and bug fixes for the time being. Windows 10 Mobile is a platform with good ideas and plenty of potential but mobile device ecosystems live and die by those who develop for them.
