I am going to say that they are going to make a fith movie in the franchise!!! Because we can't won't just have see number 4 ending the franchise!!! Because it was a another mishaf of alvin because he let rodent's in the house and Dave did not like rodent's Alvin totally forgot that when they firsg met right?
I doubt a direct to DVD movie would have the budget to hire any of the main actors from the previous 4 installments as well as the much more sophisticated visual effects. I expect that if they were to make a new movie then they would use Weta digital (the company responsible for the effects of the Lord of the Rings movies) for the CGI of the Chipmunks like they did with Road Chip since they did get a slight re-design. Not only that, the budget for Road Chip was $90 million, most of which for a movie like this goes into the rendering of the CGI; and since Road Chip made the least amount of money of the 4 instalments, that's why I doubt we'll ever see a 5th one.
They might have a 5th film with Alvin, Simon, Theodore, Dave, Miles, Rebecca (Miles's mom), hopefully Toby comes back and other characters. I should say it would release in 2019 or 2020 (My prediction could be wrong), besides they're super popular.

Actually, the name of Miles' mom was Samantha.
I also don't think Toby will ever come back even if they were making a new film because he wasn't even that memorable. In every film all of the non-legacy characters (except for Ian) don't make it on to the next one. Claire Wilson was never seen or mentioned again after the first film, Toby, Aunt Jackie, and the West Eastman High School characters including Dr. Rubin are never present after The Squeakuel, and Zoe disappears after Chipwrecked.
Even though Miles had more emphesis in Road Chip and was a much more interesting character than most of the minor ones in the 4 films, I don't think even that would justify him returning in a fifth film. That, and the actor who played Miles was already in his 20s during Road Chip and wouldn't be covincing as a teenager again by the time of a fifth one; given that he already looked late high school age and would likely have since moved onto college. Just like with Claire, Dave and Samantha would probably break up some time after Road Chip and they wouldn't even mention it on screen in a fifth one.
As for it coming out in 2019 or 2020, in addition to Miles, the Chipmunks and Chipettes would be too old for a kid's movie. Road Chip may have had some more serious themes going on but having the characters as adults wouldn't be as entertaining.
Add that to what I said above about the special effects and actors being too costly, and I can assure you that as a theatrical film or otherwise, a fifth film will not happen. Sorry to say, the movie series is over.
Films can't make money years before they are released. That is clearly a poor fan edit to try and make us think it's real. Fox or Disney as they own the films now along with Ross and Janice have said nothing about there being a 5th CGI film.
Unfortuantely, this is what happens with movies. Once a franchise starts with a movie, sequels are bound to happen. (Examples include: Shrek, Ice Age, Toy Story, Madagascar, Cars, Star Wars, etc.) They do it for the money, no matter how many fans complain.

It sounds good, but its fake and not meant to be taken seirously.
