I think they probably are planning on some new version of the Warriors comic, but I also think Night Thrasher, Nita, and Microbe are dead for the time being. Civil War is current editorial's baby, and bringing back the other Warriors would not only gut Speedball's current storyline as the only survivor, but also take away some of the fallout from Civil War. Namor doesn't have much reason to be angry if Nita ends up fine.
I don't think Night Thrasher was ever quite as interesting after New Warriors #25. His motivation for being a hero was more or less destroyed, and the character was never quite as strong after that. I think his death makes the New Warriors more interesting, because they can no never go back to being what they were.
