KEY POINTS

  • "The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2" was announced a few years ago
  • Nintendo has not yet revealed its plans for the highly awaited sequel
  • Some fans think they would hear more of "The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2" in December

"The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2" is one of the highly awaited titles fans hope to see released this year but while Nintendo has not yet said anything about its plan for the sequel, some fans think the game's world premiere could debut sometime in December.

Speculations about "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2" stemmed from a cryptic message from The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley. The Canadian video game journalist and TV presenter tried to hype the upcoming annual video games industry's awards ceremony on Twitter.

"Just saw the final cut of a #thegameawards world premiere we have been working on with a developer for 2.5 years. Truly honored we are entrusted to share this work with the world," Keighley said.

The tweet is vague and the TV presenter could be referring to anything but some fans concluded that it might be about Nintendo's major title. Speculations claimed that Keighley's tweet is hinting at the appearance of "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2" at The Game Awards.

In response to Keighley's tweet, GameXplain founder said about the time frame, "That's about how long ago Breath of the Wild 2 was revealed." Another Twitter user responded to Keighley's tweet and noted, "I really do want to believe he is referring to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2."

Citing a couple of reasons, the user said, "The game is pretty far along now, and Nintendo has been holding back information on the game including the subtitle." They also noted that "Zelda has a Game Awards history."

In a follow-up tweet, Keighley said, "2.5 years sounds like a long time, but summer of 2019 was actually my last global tour to visit developers. I always have so much fun visiting studios and hearing about their projects. Hope to do it again in 2022."

The mention of traveling globally could be a good sign for fans hoping that "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild 2" would appear at the annual video game awards ceremony. Unfortunately, Nintendo has not yet announced anything related to the highly anticipated game sequel.

It is worth noting that while this is an interesting idea and good news for fans of "The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2," it is just an idea and not an official announcement from Nintendo. Fans should therefore take this as a highly speculative idea.
