I'm with mzuzek on this one, if it was coming next year they would've said so, as they'd have gained a ton of hype from that.

There's nothing to indicate it will come out in 2020; it still doesn't even have a title nor have they shown any gameplay.

Thankfully, until during the wait for BOTW, this time we have plenty to play in the meantime.

I'll repeat to you then.  It could be that they don't know if it'll be ready in 2020.  Let's say the team has a goal of 2020, but the schedule is tight, it's obviously a huge game, and it could easily slip.  Nintendo makes no promises that they have to walk back.  Nintendo's been very good about keeping a realistic schedule and have delayed only three titles from a promised timeframe in the Switch era.  And two of them and it's quite possible that two of them were/will be ready to go, but held back do to scheduling logic.

Basically, I'm saying that the lack of a timeframe isn't really evidence one way or the other of when it will come out.

As for gameplay.  Why would we need that?  We can just play Breath of the Wild.  All they can add are specific new mechanics which can be announced any time.  It was probably the reveal in least need of gameplay at all of E3.

If it was slated for 2020 they would've said so, there's precedent for them missing release windows.

And gameplay would show how it differs from BOTW, why its not just the same game again.

Sorry, but there's nothing to back that up.  Nintendo's conservative with their release windows these days.  Could mean something, could mean nothing.  None of us know.

And people are expecting and cool with it being basically the same game.

There's nothing to back up that it's coming before 2021, but the lack of even a title and the fact its only a teaser are clearly signs it is a long way off.

But I know from experience that you don't debate in good faith, so there's no point trying to discuss this with you. See ya.

I mean, if I remember right, we had the title for Yoshi's new game only 6-7 months before it's release, I'm pretty sure they could announce that during another trailer at E3 next year or a bit earlier.

I didn't say there was.  I'm clearly expressing an opinion that's agnostic on which year it would come out.  All I said was that we don't know and that the lack of gameplay in a reveal trailer for a game over a year away that is using the same engine and assets as a previous beloved game doesn't mean anything.

Apologies for my rudeness, I was too quick to hit "submit" on this one.

I don't rule out the possibility of it arriving in 2020, I just don't think its likely, especially given this is Zelda we're talking about and Aonuma just today spoke about the team taking their time as opposed to back in the day when Majora was made very quickly.

That being said, I would love for it to come out in 2020. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Wrong, BotW 2 was announced with "now in production" which is a later phase in the development process than "now in development".

No.

And I stand by my point. If your game has a chance of coming out next year, you state as much in the trailer. It gets more hype, simple as that. You only don't put a release year on the trailer if there is no chance of it coming next year, because at that point a "2021" is just lame.

No need to put a date. 90% of people are pumped. It's mostly people who just want to hate on Nintendo that will nonstop bring up date. 

Besides, giving a date and then later a delay is way worse than no date.





Not a bad theory.
