The answer really depends on your current site. If you have a smooth running Magento 1.9 site and all is well then there is no need to rush to Magento 2. However, if you have an older Magento site eg 1.8 or less or if your site is temperamental and needs work then now would be a great time to consider moving to Magento 2.
