I don't know if they will, but it seems like the Sorcerer offers an interesting design possibility, in that their spell list could be entirely tied to their bloodline. The main trait of a sorcerer (or, at least the way I think of a sorcerer) is that they are born with innate magic, and I see no reason why that inborn magic should be forced into only one of the four available types of magic
So, an Arcane bloodline would produce a "standard" PF1 sorcerer, a Divine bloodline gives us Favored Soul, the theoretical Occult bloodline produces something that lives in a similar space as the Shaman, and a Primal bloodline would create an elementalist or something similar. That way, they could have several options in the Core for players without having to create several more classes in future books. It seems like a lot of PF1 additional class design was to create something that was "sorcerer, only with a different type of magic", and that you could get around a lot of that by making the class itself more flexible from the beginning.
