Re: Venus Exploration, What are the future missions?

At one time scifi dreamers speculated it had a hot swampy jungle

Why is Venus called Earth's twin?

Landsailing study

This study follows several earlier studies of Venus rover designs. In 2003, a NASA RevolutionaryAerospace Systems Concepts (RASC) study “Robotic Exploration of Venus”  looked at the technologies needed for a future (2048) mission to Venus incorporating rovers, aircraft, and orbiters.

Coming in the future, possible missions there is VERITAS from NASA JPL and EnVision from ESA. Roscosmos has been talking about another Venus mission since the days of the USSR break up I think they are out of the game even more today. We have ISRO’s Shukrayaan some news reports speculated maybe a Planetary Exploration of China not yet named mission, then space dot com and the Planetary society said it was named VOICE the Venus Volcano Imaging and Climate Explorer.

The art and science of aerobraking: The key to exploring Venus

The decade of Venus is almost upon us. With three upcoming Venus missions planned from NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA), we’re on the cusp of learning more about our neighboring planet than ever before.

But we won’t only be learning about planetary science. This time we’ll also be learning how to control a spacecraft in an alien atmosphere, thanks to two missions — ESA’s EnVision and NASA’s VERITAS — which are set to use a new technique called aerobraking to get their spacecraft into the right orbit for them to do their science.

Interesting how when NASA and ESA don't do a joint project like JWST they often time their separate missions very close together like the upcoming 'Dark Matter / Dark Energy mission and Europa exploration.
