Throwing in spoiler tag in case I'm right when the book releases later this year and the inevitable movie sequel appears:
1. Nolan Sorrento will somehow escape justice, flee the country and start over his attempts to gain control of Halliday's company and the Oasis. (per the lore of the game TRON 2.0 this is what Ed Dillinger did)
2. Nolan Sorrento is rotting in jail forever but he has legacy plans and contingencies in place, so that while he may never get free he still gets revenge.
Your standard super-villain plot from any era.
3. Halliday knows that heroes need both challenges and villains. Thus he has the Oasis pre-programmed with new threats and challenges that trigger after a specific amount of time has passed after the easter egg is won. Threats that are coded in such a way as to be resistant to Parzival's power in the Oasis but that could be taken down the old fashioned way, via challenges and combat.
4. Halliday knows a hero needs a villain, so who better then his avatar Anorak itself? Preprogrammed to be the opponent of the winner of the Easter Egg, both Parzival and Anorak are equally matched and thus the Oasis is now their chessboard for lack of a better term and all Oasis players are essentially their pieces.
