Sarah Silverman and John C. Reilly assured Moviehole that Wreck-It Ralph 2 is on the way, Moore already has plans to include one icon of the video game industry in the next movie: Mario, “We'll really come up with something good for Mario to do [in the next film]“, says Moore. “To be able to present him in the sequel, would be great.”

In a few interviews, Rich Moore has revealed some of his ideas for the sequel's storyline.
One idea he mentions includes expanding the gaming universe onto different planes. He particularly makes a point on including mobile and online gaming, believing it would be "great to work in a story about those types of games that are so prevalent, contemporary and part of today's culture."
Another possible plot point Moore brought up was the possibility of Ralph and the gang meeting other versions of themselves, from other arcades or more modernized platforms. It is unknown if Mario or Tron, two cameos scheduled to appear in the sequel, will have an important role in the film.
