Worth noting that many people made that exact same argument for why it would launch in 2020 when it was announced in 2019. "It's the same map, same engine". That sure went well.
But I think it's more likely it will launch in 2022 than not.
Indeed. In fact, I was one that was pretty sure that it would launch this year, in time for Zelda's 35th anniversary. Should have known better...
