The Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an upcoming game in The Legend of Zelda series for the Nintendo Switch, and a direct sequel to Breath of the Wild. It is confirmed to be in development presently, but currently has neither a release date nor an official title. Another teaser is likely, as Nintendo usually gives a cryptic teaser to get fans exited, then an official trailer with an expected release date.
Development of the twentieth game in The Legend of Zelda series began in 2017 after the production for Breath of the Wild ended. During the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct it was announced that it would be a sequel to Breath of the Wild. The idea of creating a direct sequel came from the fact that Eiji Aonuma, producer of Breath of the Wild, wanted to revisit the same Hyrule while incorporating a new story and gameplay mechanics. Initially, new ideas were thought of for DLC but evolved into a new game when too many were gathered.
When asked about cooperative gameplay or Zelda being a playable character, Aonuma declined to answer.
