June 2, 2021

The Legend of Zelda franchise comprises one of the most popular games of all time. Over the years, the Zelda games have set a benchmark for the gaming industry, introducing a wide range of groundbreaking mechanics.

During E3 2019, Nintendo announced that it is working on a sequel to the critically acclaimed Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While fans were quite excited to learn more about the game, the reveal didn’t show much apart from the main announcement.

Since then, fans have been eagerly waiting to learn more about the game. However, Nintendo didn’t reveal anything apart from the fact that it is still in development.

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Sequel Releasing in 2022 As Per Reports

Today, Japanese game industry analyst, Dr. Serkan Toto, has teased that the Breath of the Wild sequel might be coming in 2022. This is quite a new development, as rumors had earlier suggested that we might be getting in the latter half of this year.

Nintendo’s next Direct is slated to be held on the 15th of June, and we should learn more about the Breath of the Wild Sequel in all probability. A Nintendo Switch Pro is also rumored to be revealed from under the wraps, so that’s something to look out for as well.

While this is quite a credible source, it still should be taken with a grain of salt like with all other rumors. However, it might be just that the pandemic has disrupted Nintendo’s plans to release a Breath of the Wild sequel this year, which makes the 2022 release window quite a fair possibility.
