Was BR intended to be a trilogy?

I just read that Hampton Fancher is in talks to return and write the BR sequel. The movie will take place a few years after the original.

The article says:
Scott and his Blade Runner collaborator Fancher originally conceived of their 1982 classic as the first in a series of films incorporating the themes and characters featured in Philip K. Dick's groundbreaking novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", from which Blade Runner was adapted. Circumstances, however, took Scott into other directions and the project never advanced.

I never heard that. Are they just making up BS to make the sequel seem more interesting?
