There are no immediate plans.

When we last checked, there were no problems with PCRE, but PCRE2
wasn't available in most distributions we support, making the
switch mostly meaningless.

Also, it looks like PCRE2 is still not supported even by Exim,
which is the parent project of PCRE and PCRE2:


As such, adding PCRE2 support to nginx looks premature.
