It will come in some shape, but it may not be a perfect experience, as most devs rightfuly gave up on S2 due to all the crap (not) coming from Samsun.

I dont think devs completely gave up on s2 because since s2 stopped at 4.1.2 devs got it all the way up to 4.4.4 with cyanogenmod based roms and they seem to work flawlessly. Some of the kitkat roms for s2 are official by cyanogenmod

Dude,i think you are wrong!
yes it's ture S2 it's kind of old. BUT! if you just give S2 Developing Thread a visit you will see that it has many Custom roms and lot's of good Dev's are still working on it!

Samsung Galaxy SII still have more Custom Roms and Mods than Some New Smart phones.

All the main devs are gone. Once there will be bigger change in lets acceleration handling in new Android release, S2 will be done. Once S3 will be done with updates, there won't be any way for S2 to be mended by hacking stuff from other similar devices. I've happily sold my old S2 for the same price I've paid for the phone to my operator throughout the years and got Xperia Z2. S2 was great, but it was Samsung and that made it die prematurely. Never ever Samsung.
