Has it been mentioned anywhere as to how Sgt. Slaughter is going to be re-released yet?

In the December Q&A.

3) Is Sgt. Slaughter coming to retail as part of the Renegades line, or part of a separate line?
A) Unfortunately, the Sarge will not be available in mainline or any other line. Sorry.

So Hasbro cancelled his re-release? WTF! I really hate convention exclusives.

Well, not exactly.

It is important to note that the best opportunity to obtain these special edition figures is at the convention itself.

While we cannot guarantee anything at this time, because of the demand by fans who could not get the Comic-Con figures, we are looking at making the Sgt. Slaughter figures available again at retail, albeit in different packaging and likely not as single-carded basic figures. While details are not final we are making progress for late Spring ’11 and will have news in a couple months. We look forward to updating you then.
Bolded emphasis Hasbro's; underlined emphasis mine. They never said he was going to be released again, so there was nothing to cancel. They said they were looking at getting him out there again.
