Honestly OP, if money is tight and you already have trinity, I don't think at this point Rebellion gives 30 euros worth of content. At least compared to the ratio original Sins and that $10 expansions gave. Unless they have a lot of partially finished content they haven't put into the beta yet (in addition to the Vasari of course), I think their ambition with this project fell well short of what they wanted. Unless the changes add things like the Scenarios they talked about get added in future betas, I'd say your safe waiting for it to get quite a bit cheaper.
One of the important reason is that, you purchase the pre-order, then the publisher get the money early, then the chance of dev guys be fired is decreased and also the chance to develop Sins2 is increased.
I do not think this is an issue with Sins. Keep in mind that Stardock, the publisher, not Ironclad, the original game studio, is doing a lot of the work for this expansion. The reason is because Ironclad is working on their next game, Sins of a Dark Age, at the same time. As Ironclad is still a small studio, SoaDA is certainly their main focus right now and it seems unlikely they would even start exploring the idea of Sins 2 until its released. Even then I bet they'll keep working on Sins of a Dark Age a bit after release, so my prediction is that Sins 2 won't be out until at least 3 years after the release of SoaDA.
Point is, I do not think money is the limiting factor in their decision not to do a Sins 2.
