T-Mobile places the venerable G2 on its most recently discontinued list of handsets
Still, all handsets eventually succumb to this inevitable end – no matter if you’re a lonely basic clamshell or if you’re sporting some top-notch hardware. Interestingly enough, the follow up device didn’t last as long as its predecessor, but it’s no doubt leaving a profound mark with T-Mobile customers. Launched back in the fall, it’s widely recognized for its awesome, yet interesting landscape style QWERTY keyboard. Moreover, it was also the first T-Mobile smartphone to bring customers into the 4G mix.
We’ll all shed a tear for this one, but fear not, its timely discontinuation might bring forth the onset of yet another HTC manufactured Android smartphone to the carrier – the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide.

Is it possible another revamp of the g2 is on it's way?

no. The G series and the Mytouch series are different. Or the LG G2X would have been the Mytouch4G 2

I think what the person was asking is if there was going to be another version/variant of the G2.

Im sure there will be a G3. It is a Tmobile line of pure google phones. The G2 is about to get seriously outclassed as the mytouch slide4g comes out as well as the sidekick4g.
of course, i think the original mytouch slide should have been killed long before the G2, as the G2 is far superior to that crap phone.

One would think/hope so. Probably with a more plastic feel/build and Gingerbread.

I think/hope that it is just the Titanium version and not the phone itself. That would be a waste if it is and would mean that the Evo Shift would be on its way out as well. They will probably stop supporting them as well if the Desire Z variants do come to a full EOL.

I believe the line up had said something about a T-Mobile G Infinity in the works for T-Mobile. I wonder what that'll come with.

They need to fix or discontinue the G2x. I went through 5 of those POS phones, and still had software problems.
