The official answer from Tuccy for this

There might be a chance to get the special captains again in the future. Or there might be a chance to get new captains with similar effects - difficult to see, always in motion is the future... ;)

 

Steven Seagal has the added baggage of partnership conditions, so it is more complicated, however we know there is demand for special captains, incl. him. And in fact...On WG Fest you were able to see a preview of one currently int he works for the French tree.

 

The new French captain he is talking about is already listed in the english wiki:

Looks like Seagal gets patched out of the game.

To be more precise, he is renamed and his portrait changes.

 

That will allow WG to put him back in the game without legal issues.

 

So I'd say his chances to come back has increased with this change !!

The short answer is.. no, longer answer is, who knows, at some stage WG might decide to agree with Mr Seagal that they can run another such campaign. Perhaps when (if) they bring the Missouri back to the game (which is off their agenda currently, having just taken it out to be replaced by the Musashi).

 

Keep your fingers crossed and watch this space in a couple of years time is probably as good as it gets.

At one point in the future I see WG getting the bright idea that they can sell special captains for irl monies ... (not so difficult to see the future is) 

 

But I wouldnt hold my breath waiting for it ...

since its non fictional character, it all depends on the contract between Steven Seagal and WG...which we have no idea about.

mind you, same thing happen with ARP , the contract is over, so those things more likely will never came back (according to WG)

 

so its not possible to answer OP question

I'm going to be less pessimist than other posters. 

 

It is not impossible but it is highly unlikely : collaboration between WG and Seagall is over.

 

Nevertheless, special and legendary commanders are a thing WG wants to develop so if Steven doesn't come back, another commander could arrive for the US ...

Jingles did a video on this recently. It seems Segal has had a slew of sexual assault claims against him in recent years and one more recently. Of course the leftist media are keeping it quiet. But I dont blame WG for wanting to cut ties with him.. especially seeing as they are currently promoting womens day

Yeah, they are keeping it so quite that it is all over the news? What are you reading? Times from 1899?

Agree, but, just to clarify, under a different name.

So, yes, you might be able to obtain John Doe at some point, with the same skills, but we'll never have Steven Seagal (or his image) in the game again.

It is a waste of time and effort to keep content restricted to the lucky few who were around when it was able to obtain it.

Aside from explicit promises not to (Alpha and Beta rewards), OP ships (looking at you, Kitakami), and special rewards (USS Black), they will probably make items available again at some point.
