This is their official response –
“Thank you for reaching OnePlus Customer support.This is Alex from OnePlus. We greatly appreciate your time and effort in reaching out to us. Your concern is of utmost importance, and I will be helping you out with your ticket. As much as we would like to give the latest update on the OnePlus 2, we’ve discontinued updates for dated devices.But we will continue to support the limited warranty for current users and provide updates and support the best way we can even for OnePlus 2 users,”.

While OnePlus not revealed anything regarding the OnePlus X, it can be assume that even this device will not receive the Android Nougat upgrade.
Coming to the newer devices, OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 3 and 3T will receive the Android O upgrade soon after it is announced.
