Steins;Gate Zero will not be a direct sequel, no. Remember when Okabe stabbed Kurisu and lost his resolve? Only to be revitalized once he received the Operation Skuld D-Mail from his future self? The Okabe in Epigraph and Zero is the Okabe that did not try again after killing Kurisu, the Okabe that gave up and resigned himself to misery. Steins;Gate 0, inspired of being marketed as the "true sequel" to Steins;Gate, does not take place after the ending of Steins;Gate. Even though it is canonical, it takes place just before the ending of Steins;Gate. The story between the two is exactly the same upto (and including) Episode 22. It diverges in Episode 23 with the original story being covered in Episode 23: Open the Steins Gate, and the alternate version, a Steins;Gate 0 OVA, being covered in Episode 23(β) Open the Missing Link. In this story, after killing Makise Kurisu, Okabe Rintarou gives up and accepts her funeral fate. The main difference between this and the original episode 23 is that this Okabe does not receive the Video-Mail from himself. He will go on to eventually create Operation Skuld and the Video-Mail, helping S;G Okabe thwart world line convergence and successfully avert both Kurisu's death and WWIII in order to enter the Steins;Gate world line of 1.048596% divergence. It follows the world where Okabe tried to save Kurisu, but stabbed her instead. It is the worldline in which Okabe doesn't get the "deceive yourself" message from himself, but it is most likely the one that sends that message.

Before Sword Art Online was published, Kawahara had posted Sword Art Online novels on his website and there are still a few side stories on Sword Art Online, although the original novels have been removed. In addition, Kawahara has published a side story of Sword Art Online in one of his other works, Accel World. In the tenth volume of Accel World, there is a chapter where it depicts a cross over between Sword Art Online and Accel World. Several of the side stories that he has released are in a collection called the Sword Art Online Material Edition, sold at the Comitia dōjinshi-selling event, which range from novels to manga. However, all of the art in the Material Editions is drawn by Kawahara himself. Aside from the light novels written by Kawahara, there are also two spin-offs written by other authors with supervision by him. The first one is Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online series written by Keiichi Sigsawa and illustrated by Kouhaku Kuroboshi, while the other is Sword Art Online Alternative: Clover's Regret, written by Watase Souichirou and illustrated by Ginta. While both of these series take place in the same world as the main series written by Kawahara, they each feature different characters as the focus compared to the main series.
