Default Update galaxy s4 (google play edition rom)?

So I have 4.4.2 on my galaxy s4, but I am wondering about something, Let's say a new android version comes out... I have custom recovery so I wont be able to use OTA update... Will I have to wipe everything to flash an updated rom?

For best and error free results it's always good to do a full wipe
which includes "Factory Reset", wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache,
wipe data and wipe system before flashing any new or updated
roms or firmware.

Good luck!
Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
