Sorry to dash your hopes, but RFC appears to be planning on at least a half dozen books to wrap everything up.

According to David (at the July NASFIC), Safehold is "supposed" to be about 6 more books. I believe it was mentioned several years ago that there was a 5 book contract for the War God series (and the Sword of the South was the first of the five) - so 4 more to go.

There may be more coming, but by my count Sword of the South is the fifth:
Oath of Swords (February 1995)
The War God's Own (May 1998)
Wind Rider's Oath (May 2004)
War Maid's Choice (July 2012)
The Sword of the South (August 2015)

the contract was reported as being something new and was not announced until after war maid's choice.

so yes while sword of the south is the fifth book, it is only book 1 of a 5 book contract.
