Criterion has written in response to a few people's recent requests (mostly about Chimes, I believe) that they are not planning on acquiring the rights to anymore Welles films.
I remember when TCM showed Immortal Story back in '05 for the Welles 90th birthday deal, that it was prefaced with the Janus films logo.

I too thought that Fake and Arkadin did well for them; sure got great reviews and press. And when they were releasing laser discs, I beleieve Criterion put out Kane, Ambersons, Shanghai, Macbeth, Othello, Arkadin, Evil and Fake.
So why stop now?
