Yes, 4 years is very possible, but like I said, I think it's all up to what Kishimoto wants to do, if he's up for it or not. Going by what's going on right now, I think he might be getting tired of the series, tired of working on it, but I could be wrong, he might just be in a slump. Many manga-ka start to tire out around this time, around this point in a series, it's been up for a hell of a long time. Either way, "soon" might not be all that quick going for others, and it end quickly, there are still lots of things to delve into, but in terms of what's left as a whole, four years could be the maximum, I'm not sure.
