No. Nikon Rumors reported a Nikon patent recently for a 55-300 f2.8-4 VR. That could be the 70-300 replacement.

The current non-VR 300mm f/4 is over twice the price of a 70-300VR. Add in all those other focal lengths at f-stops between f/2.8 and f/4 and you have a fairly big and certainly fairly expensive zoom lens. If a 55-300/2.8-4 is ever sold, it would more likely be a replacement for the 70-200/2.8 then the current 70-300.
