Autofocus in Video

HI Guys

Do you know if Autofocus in video can be implemented in the K-5ii in a future firmware update? or is it a hardware thing?
It would be nice to have

Highly unlikely this will ever be introduced in existing K-series DSLRs, that is too large of a feature and the K-3 has already been developed. And nobody in the public is sure if even the K-3 will support this.

I believe the only Pentax cameras that support continuous video AF are the MX-1 compact, and possibly the X-5 bridge camera, which some would argue are not 100% Pentax/Ricoh platforms.
