Not only are there not ever going to be new maps, but Cryptic is gradually removing existing PVP maps.
"We heard that Solar Wind causes lag and issues for some players and no one really likes it, so we went ahead and removed it so that it's now easier to get onto a map that you like! You're welcome!"

Eh, to be honest, the map isn't really something that's important to me, at least for space PvP. Most of the time people end up just spiraling upwards and leaving all of the pretty bits of the map behind, so the only thing that I really see is whatever background they decided to slap on the map. New maps for space PvP would be nice, but unless they include some new mechanic I'm not sure that they'd be anything special.
Another map wouldn't relieve the boredom. Really, does different scenery for an arena or cap and hold change your tactics? Another objective would be better.
