First off I’d like to say most news about a film not being shot in 3D is good news.  Granted there are exceptions, Hugo in 3D was very immersive, but for every good 3D film there are countless others that are not good.  In an interview on MTV Gary Ross has said that they are not going to be filming Catching Fire, the next film in the Hunger Games series, in 3D.  The interview is after the link

“No, absolutely not, no [I wouldn’t consider 3D for Catching Fire]. I don’t think it’s appropriate for this film. I think that if we shoot this movie in 3D, we become the Capitol; we start making spectacle out of something that I don’t think is really appropriate here. There needs to be an aesthetic distance because of the nature of the material, the premise, what they’re doing. I think that cinematic techniques designed to intensify the experience if you feel them that way, aren’t really appropriate. I mean I love 3D, I really do and I think it’s a wonderful tool, I just don’t think it’s the right tool for this.”
