There's still so much past to explore, too many stories to be told to ever need to go beyond 40k as a setting.
Just since the HH there is 10,000 years worth of history to cover. 10,000 years!
Think of everything that's gone on in human history on earth in the last 2000 years, how many books could and have been written, forgotten, re written, re imagined etc.
The fall of Rome, the dark ages, the renaissance, the number of civil wars fought all across the world.
The rise and fall of the Vikings, the Saxons, the Normans, the Crusades, the industrial revolution, the rise of communism and facism and democracy.
That's just scratching the surface of 2k yeras of the history of one world, now times the time scale by five and the number of worlds by millions, add in the history and influence of other races and cultures and the proof that Gods in 40K do exist.
Honestly, why would you need to progress beyond 40K?
