I'm pretty sure Spock Prime won't be in the next one. Even here, his presence was very brief, as in get up to go pee and come back and it never happened, brief.
Nimoy's presence in ID served so little purpose to the story I cannot help feel there was some ulterior motive for his cameo. Like a placeholder
of sorts suggesting some greater future involvement.
I cannot think of any bigger future involvement than his eventually giving us the Grand Tour of New Vulcan.
