Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild launched alongside Nintendo Switch and is still one of the most rated console games. In fact, Breath of the Wild is one of the most popular video games of all time, and so it is not surprising that many fans are excited to play the sequel. Although Nintendo hasn’t revealed any official release date information about when fans expect to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, there’s a good chance they’ll have it by this time next year.
Emily Rogers, a well-known Nintendo insider to a fan on Twitter, points out that there is a “85-90% chance” of releasing of the Wild 2 sometime during the 2021 holiday season. Now, it’s unclear what If this was just a complete guess by Rogers or she makes the claim based on some inside information, but anyway, many fans will be reassured of their confidence in the game’s release window.
If The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 were to launch Holiday 2021 as Rogers thinks, it’s safe to say that it will be the main Nintendo game next year. Nintendo usually releases a big exclusive in October or November each year, with this year’s show being the recently released Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. With Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity as the precursor to Breath of the Wild, it would be fitting to release Breath of the Wild 2 after one year.
Another thing that should give fans confidence that they will get to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 this coming holiday season is the fact that 2021 marks a major anniversary for the Zelda franchise. In fact, 2021 is Zelda’s 35th anniversary, and many fans are expecting Nintendo to celebrate the same way it did for the 35th anniversary of the Super Mario series last year. And what better way to celebrate than the release of a highly anticipated new game
Of course, it’s always possible for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 to come out of its planned release window, especially with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on game development. Given that, fans should stop rotating their calendars yet.
If The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is really aiming for a holiday 2021 release, more information should come out next year. Fans will want to pay special attention to any presentations coming from Nintendo Direct should this happen.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is under development for the Nintendo Switch.
