Leaks had initially indicated that Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 would have been the big holiday release for the Nintendo Switch this year.
These rumours were given weight when notable leaker Sabi last November tweeted that BoTW 2 could be coming out in 2020.
Sabi tweeted: “I would tell you Botw2 is planned to release in 2020, but Zelda release dates are historically delayed, internally or publicly LOL.”
They then added: “This isn’t speculation, just current plans.”
It would make sense that Ninty would be planning to launch a big title this year for the Nintendo Switch during the holiday season.
Both the next-gen PlayStation and Xbox consoles are launching then, so having a AAA Switch game launching then would give the console a big selling point.
