IGN boss Peer Schneider says Zelda: Breath of Wild 2 still definitely on track for next year
We are all dying to hear new information concerning The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. Nintendo’s schedule has the massive game down for a 2022 release, but the Kyoto-based company hasn’t spoken or shown any footage of the game for some time now, leading some to believe it could end up being a 2023 game. However, the boss of IGN was present during The Game Awards and spoke to a number of contacts who informed him that the game is still on track for release next year and seems to be penciled in for a November release.
“IGN boss Peer Schneider said he attended The Game Awards 2021 and was able to catch up with “some people in the industry,” who apparently assured him that, despite being a no show at the awards show, Breath of the Wild 2 is still on track for a 2022 release.”
“It does sound like Nintendo is going to have a pretty good year next year. So, I would not take the absence of big stuff [at The Game Awards] as a sign that maybe Breath of the Wild is delayed or that they don’t have other stuff, because it sounds like… people at Nintendo are very excited about 2022.”
“Later on in the podcast, Schneider seems to let slip a more specific release window than 2022, suggesting we’ll be playing Breath of the Wild 2 in November of next year.”
