This would help give the House of Mario a big selling point for the Switch amid the impending sales threat from the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
Leaker Sabi, who correctly leaked tonnes of E3 2019 announcements and the Resident Evil 3 State of Play reveal, said BoTW 2 is pencilled in for 2020.
They previously posted: “I would tell you Botw2 is planned to release in 2020, but Zelda release dates are historically delayed, internally or publicly LOL”.
Sabi then added: “This isn’t speculation, just current plans.”
If Nintendo did announce the BoTW 2 release date at The Game Awards 2019, this would give them a whole year to build anticipation further.
It would also give Switch fans a tent pole release to look forward to in 2020 as the current year comes to a close.
