Good. Gotta get a move on if they wanna hit that 2023 release window. :P

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Umm, okay. I suppose it's not surprising Monolith Soft is helping with Zelda, but I'm surprised they're being so blatant about it.

Breath of the Wild sequel for NS and NS2.

Next 3D Zelda confirmed!

Hot take: They're making an action hunting spin-off game set in the Zelda universe.
Safe take: They're building up their new dev team as a support team for future 3D Zelda games.

Monolith grew A LOT in the past few years, they opened a new studio and their workforce currently counts 193 employees (likely to become 200+ with these new recruitments). We know they're working on 2 games courrently in a new Action game with online components that will likely release in 2020 and the next entry in the Xenoblade series (likely not Xenoblade 3) lead by Takahashi which begun development in the second half of 2018 due to the Torna DLC. On top of that it was fairly realistic to expect them to still be involved with the upcoming 3D Zelda given the workforce they put at Nintendo's disposal for BotW, the Zelda team likely grew a lot too but they still don't have the expertese to make the OpenWorld on their own yet

I really hope this new Zelda releases before 2022. I can't stand waiting so long again only to be disappointed.

I've been expecting a Majora's Mask style BOTW sequel for a while now, wouldn't be surprised if it launched next year.
