It has been a couple of years since Nintendo confirmed that a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was in development. The game was originally expected to be released in 2022, but now it turns out that the game has since been delayed to the spring of 2023.
This is according to a video released by Nintendo where the game’s producer Eiji Aonuma announced the delay. According to Aonuma, “We have decided to extend our development a bit and change the release to Spring 2023. In order to make this game’s experience something special, the entire development team is working diligently on this game, so please wait a while longer.”
At the moment, not much is known about the sequel to the game, but it’s safe to say that many are looking forward to it and have high expectations for it. This is because Breath of the Wild is possibly the first open-world Zelda game in a very long time, and it features brand new graphics that look amazing.
It was one of the Nintendo Switch’s launch titles and according to early reports, it was suggested that many had bought the Switch simply to play the game. Hopefully the delay will allow Nintendo to further polish the game and make it the sequel worthy of its predecessor, but we’ll have to wait until 2023 to find out.
