Does Airbus need to make an aircraft larger than the A350-1000?

With the completion of the A380, the A350-1000 is the largest aircraft Airbus makes. Still it is not as big as the B777-9. Will/should they make anything bigger than the A350-1000? Like the A350-2000? Or an all new design? This is to compete with the B777-9

Re: Qantas FY20/21 Group Results, $2.35 billion loss, 2 A380’s to be retired

I suppose they will retire two of the oldest A380s right?

Quite odd. Only 2 being retired. Thought Alan Joyce said all 12 will return to service
