According to Stephanie Meyer, author of the series, "Breaking Dawn" is the last in the four book series.  As for the line saying "the saga continues," well, she must mean in your own mind : )

So is she sure she won't write another Twilight book?  Who can say.  The series has sold millions and millions of copies for the publisher, "Hattchette Book Group," and that kind of money can be very tempting to an author (or anybody.)  She has obviously made enough money to live on for the rest of her life, but the demands from a publisher to continue a "cash cow" like the Twilight series can be hard to resist.

My guess is that Ms. Meyer will write a new novel that is unrelated to the Twilight books in the near future.  How successful that book is will determine whether she goes back for another set of Twilight books.  Think about George Lucas and Star Wars...he keeps coming back to it because that is what he is good at and that's what his fans want (and it makes him a boat-load of cash.)  The real trick will be to see if Meyer can write something else that fans will accept (in the way that Stephen King fans accepted the end of the Gunslinger books) or whether she will be forced back into her box.

Of course, like in the case of the Gunslinger books, there is the chance of the series continuing in other ways.  For example, even though King does not make the Gunslinger series anymore, he oversees a Marvel graphic novel story line that fills in some of the character's backstories.  You could very well see something like that working with twilight in the future.
