Will Verizon ever offer a phone with the Windows 10 Operating System?

It's looking lot less likely that will ever happen in the near term.

Also VZW will not announce anything in the community about their indentions with Windows 10 Mobile.  They will either be silent or release a press release on new devices.  In fact other sources (Windows Central or MSPoweruser) would announce anything before VZW would.

Or Microsoft themselves will announce something.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I doubt it.  For whatever reason with 950/950XL Microsoft opted not to enable the necessary bands for VZW network.  Even today they still haven't spent the money to certify the devices for VZW network.

I'm hoping that the HP Elite X3 will have the necessary bands when it's released.

I was referring to Microsoft making an announcement for new phones whatever they may be. Microsoft announced the 950/950XL phones even if they weren't compatible with the Verizon Wireless network.

If you read between the lines, it seems VZW is phasing out the Windows phone on their network. They don't even list the HTC One M8 on their site anymore and Microsoft is not listed as a manufacturer...... Once I have this HTC paid off I will be going unlocked and running on a GSM network that supports a Windows 10 phone. If I can figure a way out sooner then all the better.

The Lumia 735 is getting W10M. The question is now if manufacturers will make a CDMA Windows phone. I have no doubt Verizon would have carried the 950 if Microsoft had bothered to get CDMA certification. In the end, the many flaws the 950 has will make it a good miss for Verizon. And it's a placeholder for the Surface Phone. Microsoft will put zero effort into fixing the 950's issues once the Surface Phone is released. THAT'S the one to watch! Look at the Windows Central support forums, or the Microsoft forums, to see all the unhappy 950 owners. Even the tireless Microsoft apologists have run out of ways to spin the problems and mollify the unhappy owners.
