While I have no official information from support, I can tell you this is in the works. It has been demoed at (Ignite maybe?) and seen in action. There is still ongoing development to make the feature just right. If I had to guiess, I would say we should start seeing it in preview customer tenants by July of 2017. Bear in mind that there is nothing "Official" as far as a release date.
At this point, the Office 365 service only allows for the retention of audit entries for 90 days. Can you provide us more information regarding your requirement to keep logs for 3 years. Is this a legal obligation? Please provide details around the specific audit entries you would like to retain for an extended period of time.
As noted by the admin, the default is 90 days. However, if you have a requirement you can use the Office 365 Management API and ingest the data into your own database, or CASB/SIEM application. This will allow you to meet your legal retention requirements for auditing. to get started with the management API, see the Following Link:

Work on O365 Compliance Team. I thought the same way. Started talking to Engineering team about how hard it would be to implement. I found out there used to be one. But, there were several incidents where people were clicking the purge button "Accidentally" and wiping out messages. It was decided to reduce the number of accidental deletions of important emails to remove it.
