IGN conducted an E32021 interview with Nintendo Treehouse Biltrinen and Nate Bifurdorf to find out why the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is officially named. The pair suggested that there are subtitles for the game, but they’re just not ready to reveal what it is yet.
“It’s clear that Zelda’s name is important as to why we’re refraining from it, so please wait a moment. Those subtitles … they’re probably starting to give some hints about what’s going to happen. In the meantime, Trinen said:[Breath of the Wild 2] Will be shorthand, and it’s no wonder people want to find a shorthand way to assemble it. We call it the sequel to Breath of the Wild. “
