COMMENTS

The smaller of the two prime factors is given in A083341. The next candidates for a continuation are 55 and 61. (55!)^2 + 1 is composite with 147 decimal digits and unknown factorization.
(55!)^2 + 1 has been factored using ECM into P52*P96 with P52 = A083341(15). (61!)^2 + 1 is composite with 168 decimal digits.  Hugo Pfoertner, Jul 13 2019
Using CADONFS, (61!)^2 + 1 has been factored into P58*P110 with P58 = A282706(61) in 17 days wall clock time using 56 million CPU seconds. a(18) >= 75.  Hugo Pfoertner, Aug 04 2019
