  In an email exchange with Don Ferguson, KD6IRE, spokesman for the Trans-Atlantic APRS balloon flights, he said that the second one was the last and that they are moving on to other, unspecified things.

There is a video of the latest launch, CNSP-18, on YouTube and I am sure it will appear soon on their site.

  That was my paraphrase.  He simply said that they were going to move on, but I think they want to keep things under wraps until they get closer.  Perhaps that's it for ballooning for them and "other things" are another area altogether.  Speculate all you want.

If you want to be more closely connected try joining other  Ballooning groups:
