A shock for Switch Players: Zelda-Producer Eiji Aonuma announces as part of a video that the release of Breath of the Wild 2 shifts.
Although no concrete reasons for the delay, but a new release window are called in the short clip. Breath of the Wild 2 should now appear in spring 2023: **
A precise appointment does not use aonuma in the video. For Switch players, this means that Breath of the Wild 2 is expected to appear between mid-February and at the end of March 2023 . Purely hypothetically, a release would be conceivable in January. But we do not assume that Nintendo brings his new switch hit shortly after Christmas.

Why does Breath of the Wild 2 appear later?
An official justification for the displacement of the release date is not available at the moment. However, it can be assumed that the development team simply needed more time to complete the successor of Breath of the Wild and to bring on a reasonable technical condition . Nintendo will attach great importance to commit the same error as CD project Red with Cybepunk 2077.
In the video, Aonuma also indicates that the size of the game world could play a supporting role for the shift. Finally, Switch players in the new Zelda game are not only able to explore HYRULE itself, but also the sky. Well possible that the area to be explained in the new offshoot is still huge . In addition, link has access to further new skills and even more equipment.
Although a timely release of Breath of the Wild 2 would be nice, we are still glad that Nintendo has decided to postpone his next switch hit to finish him in peace. As soon as there are news, we keep you up to date.
