The Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild 2 Has Been Delayed

Nintendo has delayed the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 to 2023, as has been announced via its official channels.

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma appeared in a video on Nintendo’s social media accounts to bring the news: “We previously announced that we were aiming for a 2022 release for this game,” he stated in the video, which you can see below.

However we have decided to extend our development time a bit and change the release to spring 2023. For those of you who have been looking forward to a release this year, we apologise.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 was scheduled to release sometime in 2022, but it’s now due to arrive in Spring 2023. 

As previously announced,” Aonuma continued, “the adventure in this sequel will take place not just on the ground as in the previous game, but also in the skies above. However, the expanded world goes beyond that, and there will be an even wider variety of features you can enjoy, including new encounters and new gameplay elements.
