It has long been clear that a sequel to Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be released for Nintendo Switch. However, a release date was unclear. As part of the "Nintendo Direct" show, a specific date for a release has still not been announced, but at least there is now a planned release year. 

Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 for Nintendo Switch is in development. The successor was announced long ago, but it was unclear how long fans would have to wait for the game. Now there is at least an expected release year.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 maybe next year

Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2022 will be released for Nintendo Switch in 2. This is the release timeline announced during the recent Nintendo Direct show. It's not really concrete, at least fans can now hope that they won't have to wait too long for the successor.

However, the release in the coming year does not seem to be certain, a certain uncertainty can be felt. "We're aiming for a 2022 release," said Eiji Aonuma, producer of the Legend of Zelda series. That doesn't sound like a release of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 set in stone. A postponement to the following year would at least be possible.

Fans, however, hope that the successor will appear as soon as possible. With such a strong draft horse as Breath of the Wild 2 it will be for Nintendo Switch, it can be assumed that Nintendo will bring the title on the market at Christmas time. While that's only a guess, a release is likely to be most likely sometime in the fourth quarter of 2022 if the action-adventure is actually supposed to appear in the coming year.

Other Zelda announcements included a Season Pass and a retro handheld featuring some of the first ever Zelda games. The full length of the show is available here:
