No one knows for sure. It is likely such rotor craft have been attempted - but there's overwhelming evidence that in real world scenarios- where there's a need for survivable vertical lift- it is inevitably filled by a conventional helos and tilt rotor affairs. The limitation might be that you cant bury conventional rotors in the airframe for stealth and not loose out on manoeuvrability/lift hence the big noisy open rotors we keep seeing. The future vertical lift project seems to be requesting conventional helos with speed, stealth and comms upgrades so no cool Aliens drop ship just yet.
