The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is undoubtedly one of the most awaited Nintendo Switch exclusives.
However, it may be because Breath of the Wild 2 is the sequel to the much-appreciated 2017 Nintendo Switch launch title, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. As it’s deemed one of the best Switch games ever – and there’s no lack of good Switch games – this has raised expectations for Breath of the Wild 2 quite high.
It doesn’t mean that we are flooded with information regarding Breath of the Wild 2, though. In fact, we don’t have any solid input about its title or official release date, but one thing is clear it is set to release in Spring 2023.
While Nintendo has kept mum about Breath of the Wild 2, we are expecting the second half of this year might provide us with some more updates. Nintendo didn’t take part in June’s Summer Game Fest, and it is quite obvious that it will join the Gamescom 2022 in August.
While we are waiting for more official news, we have collected all the information you need to know about Breath of the Wild 2 right here, including information regarding its delay, what we have got from trailers so far, and all the recent developments and rumors.
We earlier thought that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would release sometime in 2022. But Nintendo has come up with the bad news for gamers: it’s now poised for a spring 2023 release.
Series producer, Eiji Aonuma, announced in March 2022, saying:
“I have an update to share on the launch timing of the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
We previously announced that we were aiming for a 2022 release for this game. However, we have decided to extend our development time a bit and change the release to Spring 2023.”
The delay will allow Nintendo to “make this game’s experience something special.”
