Nate Moore, the vice-president of Marvel Studios, says Chris Evans' Steve Rogers/Captain America is gone.
The precise location & status of Steve Rogers is one of the main lingering issues concerning The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021).
The former Captain America received a mention in each episode, but the series kept its lips sealed when it came to confirming or denying what transpired with him after the incidents of Avengers: Endgame (2019).
Steve might be dead, leading the quiet life in retirement somewhere, or he might actually be on the moon, as many people seem to believe.
However, the fact that the details of his present location are withheld from the public has naturally created a thousand fan theories, particularly after reports circulated a few months ago that Chris Evans was discussing a potential role in a future MCU project.

Marvel Cinematic Universe doesn't really need the character anymore unless there's some kind of multiversal element to some prospective revival. Sam Wilson has now become the full-time Captain America, and Steve's storyline was neatly wrapped up with Endgame with his long-awaited dance with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) becoming the final shot of the whole Infinity Saga.
Vice President of Production and Development Nate Moore addressed the issue concerning Steve,
The relationship between Bucky and Steve is so dramatic and so filled with pathos, if you think about it, the only one who had believed in Bucky in the MCU up until this point was Steve Rogers. Well, now Steve Rogers is gone. Bucky feels unmoored in this series and is looking for his purpose.
As expected, top-tier Marvel execs aren't going to spell it out completely, but there's always a chance Steve Rogers is still alive and well, even though The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021) made a point of passing the torch through Sam's ascension to the mantle of Captain America.
