Short answer: yes, people have formulated ways to estimate $F_{ST}$ for multiallelic loci, e.g. microsatellites. For a review, see here. Specifically, Nei could define $F_{ST}$ for multiple alleles as $F_{ST} = \frac{(H_t - H_s)}{H_t}$, which is to say the proportion of total heterozygosity that is across rather than within populations. This is agnostic to ...
