No it wont. As is MP count is very close between 6D and 7D. MP count is exactly the same between D600 and D3200, it means nothing and does not affect their positioning the slightest (in fact 1DX has the same MP could as 550D and D4 has 33% less MP than D3200, have you seen anyone worried?)

Low light response is directly related to sensor size, 6D's QE is about 50%, 7D2 at best will achieve 55%, its low light will continue to be 2.5 times worse than 6D.

Bit of a rock/hard place conundrum for the Canon marketeers. I bet the tech guys have loads of great stuff they cannot release because of the marketeers.

And let Panasonic and Sony and Nikon bring them out to the market first?

55% is just speculation. I agree that sensor size plays a big role but so does all the processing, gain on sensor etc. But that is not the whole story. A lot of consumers just look at the numbers quite wrongly. And when they do cameras such as the 6D will suffer sales wise. We see lots of people on here already struggling to decide between the current 7D and the 6D. It would be a shame if the sales of the 6D dropped to a point where Canon decide not to continue down its line.
