    No, viable offsprings will not be formed.

    Explanation:

    Viable offsprings will only be formed if both the organisms which are mating have haploid sex chromosomes. Sexual reproduction is the process by which two haploid cell i. e the haploid egg and haploid sperm, fuse to form the zygote. However, if two diploid cells will join to form a zygote then the number of chromosomes in the daughter cell will not be maintained. Such a daughter cell will be different completely from the parent cell.
