The problem of that is that it requires a larger size within the silicon wafer, thus it would be much more $$$.
Easier to cram more pixels into a given normal sized sensor. They are slowly improving it, mostly I guess due to the tiny sensor modules for phones which isn't (pun) such a tiny market.
It is interesting to see what these diminute sensors are capable to do nowadays. Well, the standard of 1/3" is akin to super8 in size IIRC.
Writing in a thing that has one of these...
