VI 2.0 will be an enhanced Volcanic Islands architecture, with new ACE units and more focus on compute shaders, etc. It will also be the first GPUs for AMD to support HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.3.

I think AMD's approach for this one is the opposite of previous generations. It will be mid-range first then the high-end range. The 290X will be okay till the end of 1H 2015.
-- Edit(May 12th): Roadmap fixed and removal of codenames(since they always change) --
28nm TSMC Q4 2013 : High-end GPU, VI 1.0
28nm GlobalFoundries Q4 2014 : Mid-end GPU and Low-end GPU, VI 2.0
28nm GlobalFoundries Q2 2015 : High-end GPU, VI 2.0
20nm GlobalFoundries Q4 2015 : Mid-end GPU and Low-end GPU, PI 1.0
20nm GlobalFoundries Q2 2016 : High-end GPU, PI 1.0
14nm GlobalFoundries Q4 2016 : Mid-GPU and Low-GPU, PI 2.0
14nm GlobalFoundries Q2 2017 : High-GPU, PI 2.0
There also might not be a significant enhancement between Hawaii and the next high-end GPU.
