Or just maybe they decided that they can keep the discussion going for years with this type of ending....what did it mean? I hated / loved it? Whatever. A nice tidy ending and discussion of the show just dies after a few days. Heck, we are STILL talking about the Soprano's ending or Lost's ending more than a decade later. The potential for future "deals" are left open too. Suppose five years from now AP decides they want to do a movie? With this still open ended, they can. I'm not defending the ending, as I've said I didn't like it either, but maybe there's a method to the madness as they say.
