I am not too sure if he will be used again. It just depends if Valve treat Opposing Force as canon to the universe because I am pretty sure Race X is not considered by Valve as part of the universe.

It also comes down to business. Most gamers know of Half-Life and Gordon Freeman. Not too many know of this and that makes it more of a risk financially.

A safer option would be a Blue Shift 2 as Barney has featured in HL2.

Here's a quote from the Combine OverWiki, which is the "official" Half-Life wiki:

When asked about this possible return in May 2007, Valve's Doug Lombardi did not dismiss it but stated that there were no plans of bringing him back at the moment or anytime in the future and that for example he would not appear in Portal 2: "There's nothing being built today, there's no secret Adrian Shephard project going on right now, but that's not to say we won't ever come back and tell another Shephard story. He resonated with players really, really well. When we heard the pitch for Opposing Force, he resonated with us too. So we'll see."

In 2009, series' writer Marc Laidlaw also joked on his canon status, saying that Shephard is a bit like Schrodinger's cat: he is neither canon nor non-canon, depending on whether or not the G-Man may or may not have a use for him.
So Shephard is quite popular, even within VALVE itself.

http://WWW.moddb.com/mods/opposing-force-2 I'm not sure if this is legitimate but It looks as tho opposing force 2 might be in pre-production.

That's a mod, it's not official. And that mod has been in development for a long time.

I see nothing wrong with that idea. That way pulling Shepard out makes sense.

Gabe did a podcast or something a few days ago (sorry I don't remember the site name) but he said they haven't snuffed Adrian Shepard and they have talked about him

It seems very possible you may see him again at some point

It's not officially from Valve, it's a fan wiki that is simply quite extensive.
