Howard said that there is no sequel in works, and nothing is planned for the future of the story.

This is not the thing that you would expect, but it has been an odd and strange journey for the movie.
Solo: A Star Wars Movie won’t have any sequel | Confirmed by the Director
Well, calling Solo: A Star Wars Movie, an underground hit, is an overstating reaction for a film that performed below expectations and received lukewarm reviews. The film made a collection of only $393 million worldwide, and the movie was made on a budget of nearly $300 million. The movie was initially set to be directed and developed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, but the directors of 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie were fired five months after the production of the movie began in June 2017.Solo: A Star Wars Story

The reason for firing the director duo was revealed to be clashes over the story and tone with Kathleen Kennedy, Lucasfilm boss, and Lawrence Kasdan.
Solo: A Star Wars film was the second entry in the Star Wars Storyline of Standalone, which is now aborted. It means that there were never any intentions of developing a sequel of the film regardless of the situation if it was a much bigger success.
