Maybe Team MTN-Qhubeka as an exception at lower level.
But I can also imagine that he will retire, if he doesn't find a top team any more.
I read a German interview with him, from September. He wants to continue, and sounded arrogant as always. He was not worried at all, thinks his great reputation makes sure he´ll get enough offers, wants to be leader for the Tour at his 2013 team, but also could imagine to join NetApp-Endura.
I think he´ll find a WT or PCT team, he´s a good rider and has the best German manager, Christian Baumer, but his best days might already be over.
Though, it´s late November, not a good sign that one still hasn´t heard from him.
