Does anyone have any insight/speculation when the new vizio soundbars will be released? Current lineup is well reviewed but the lack of hdmi is a dealbreaker, I just don't want to take the TV off the wall again and run optical cables.

I don't think Vizio will make a soundbar with HDMI until it's forced upon them by lack of optical outputs. AFAIK, Sony is the only game in town when it comes to HDMI soundbars because they have multiple HDMI ports with lossless audio whereas the other companies just have one input and one output or a single HDMI port with ARC.
