The existing Support Statement on the Visual Basic version 6 runtime for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 has been updated to include Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

So, the VB 6 runtime will continue to be shipped with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, exactly the same way it was with Windows Vista and Windows 2008 Server. Beyond that, there no plans to ship or support the VB6 runtime on future Operating Systems.
