Is there any difference between “captured” and killed XCom operatives?

Two of my soldiers were labeled as “captured” after I failed to extract them in time, during a “forced retreat” timer mission. They also don’t appear in my memorial, so I still have some hope for them! Is captured the same as dead in game terms, or is there a way to recover captured soldiers somehow?


A captured soldier has a chance to appear as a VIP (or mission reward) in a mission and then can be rescued and reinstated.
