Eiji Aonuma, producer of The Legend of the Zelda series, has said those looking for new updates for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 will have to “wait a bit longer.”

Speaking during the announcement video for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, a new game set 100 years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Aonuma said the team is working hard on the long-awaited sequel, and he asked fans to have a bit of patience until new updates arrive.

“We mentioned in the June 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation that we had started development on the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” Aonuma said. “Many people around the world are still playing Breath of the Wild, so I’d like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Everyone, thank you so much. Regarding the sequel, in order to make the vast world you enjoyed exploring in the original game even more impressive, the team is working hard on its development, so you’ll have to wait a bit longer before we can provide more updates.”

In the meantime, Aonuma helped announce a new game that will let players return to Breath of the Wild’s Hyrule 100 years before the events of the first game and experience the Great Calamity.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will allow players to learn more about the BOTW’s world and play as Link, Zelda, the four champions – Mipha, Revali, Urbosa, and Daruk – and more. Additionally, it will feature 2-player co-op, and will be filled with environmental puzzles, unlockable weapons and skills, crafting, shops, the Sheikah Slate, and more.
