Future of Android 4.4 KitKat firmware update on Xperia 2011 devices is totally dark officially and even on 2012 Xperia devices, it is in shadow so far. In the meantime developer community has been a lot friendly as recently we saw unofficial CyanogenMod 11 coming up for various  devices viz. Xperia Z1, Z,  ZL, ZR, Z Ultra, T, V, Go, P, Sola, U, SP, Tablet Z; many builds from which coming from FreeXperiaTeam.

For Xperia 2011 devices viz. Xperia Arc/Arc S, Neo, Neo V, Pro, Mini Pro, Active, Mini, Ray, Live with Walkman; LegacyXperia Project Team has come up with unofficial CyanogenMod 11 now. As tested by many users, ROMs are pretty much stable only a few things are not working.
