No plans at present in offical channels that I am aware for.

The L96 (7.62mm) remains the primary sniper weapon made by Accuracy International (AI)

The Long Range Rifle (also made by AI) was introduced a couple of years ago for 16AA and RM units. The calibre is .338 and is designed to give those units greater hitter power at the longer ranges.

Hope this helps.
