We’ve been talking for a while about The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild sequel, which has been confirmed to be in the making at Nintendo during the latest E3.
However, from the looks of it, the development of the game will still require quite some time since the company is still hiring staffers in some relevant positions in the dev team.
Japanese Nintendo has a lot of details on the positions, like the hours of work and the pay, but what’s more interesting is that among those we can find a person to take care of the scenario, demo, event text creation and planning, which is an important part of the team, and someone on the planning and implementing of game events, dungeons, field, and enemies.
So, it looks like there’s still a lot of work to be done on the sequel, and there’s a chance that it could not release in time for next year and ship only in late 2021 or even later.
The fact that the game got announced so early is perhaps a way for Nintendo to fill Metroid Prime 4‘s delay to an undisclosed release window due to its development’s reboot, so we should get used to the idea that it’s still ways off.
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild sequel is rumored to be called Breath of the Darkness and to be released in 2021 together with a Nintendo Switch Pro version that would be able to make the original BotW run at 4K and 60 frames per second.
