As far as we're aware, the Monsterverse was going to conclude with Godzilla vs. Kong next year due to the fact that Legendary Pictures' licensing deal with Toho will expire. However, a recent interview with Legendary Executive Alex Garcia has revealed that if the next two films (Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs. Kong) perform well enough at the box office, the Monsterverse may have a significant future still in Hollywood!
Fansite Toho Kingdom had a chance to pick Alex's brain on the matter during a Godzilla 2 set visit. The official answer is:
It's one brick at a time, each piece has to be as good as it can be, so right now it's all focused on this (Godzilla:KOTM and GvK). BUT could there be? Yeah, that's the hope if the movies turn out really well.
It's been debated and speculated upon since 2014 that if the Monsterverse quadrilogy performs well enough that Toho will continue to open up licensing opportunities with Hollywood. Although Toho have their own plans for Godzilla in the works, the release of Shin-Gojira proved that more than one iteration of the Box Office Titan can be in circulation at the same time. Not to mention, why wouldn't Toho wish to profit off of another studio putting in the work to produce high quality Godzilla films? It accelerates the brand and keeps Godzilla relevant.
We're very excited to see what comes of the Monsterverse. Hopefully, KoTM and Godzilla vs. Kong perform well enough to secure future films. As we learn more, we'll be sure to keep you updated!
