Nintendo rarely makes direct sequels to its Legend of Zelda games, but the company is doing just that for Breath of the Wild. During E3 2019, the company announced it is working on a follow-up to the Switch launch game, and since then, the still-unnamed sequel (colloquially known as Breath of the Wild 2) has been one of the system’s most hotly anticipated releases.
Despite the anticipation surrounding it, there has been very little in the way of concrete news about the Breath of the Wild sequel since it was first revealed, and we still only know so much about the game after its recent E3 2021 trailer. While there are still many question marks around the Breath of the Wild sequel, here’s a roundup of everything we know about the anticipated follow-up so far.
At E3 2021, Nintendo announced that the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel is scheduled for release sometime in 2022. According to Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma–who appeared on the stream to discuss the game–2022 is the current aim for the team. Time will tell if that turns out to be accurate or if it might slip further into the future.
