The Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel is one of Nintendo’s biggest future plans. In March 2017, Nintendo launched Breath of the Wild, causing tons of excitement amongst fans of the famous game franchise. The game is an addition to the iconic The Legend of Zelda series that marked many people’s childhood.
Recently, Nintendo announced that they are planning on releasing a “part two” of the famous game on Switch. Although the launch of the sequel will not take place during the next couple of years, fans all over the world were thrilled to find out the news.
Nintendo did not divulge any more information about the game, and we will most likely have to wait until we get closer to the release date to learn more details. However, there is one thing we found out. It seems that Nintendo is currently searching for skilled developers to work on the project.
Nintendo Is Hiring Developers for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2
On the company’s official recruitment page, two jobs were recently listed calling for contract employees to be part of the team working on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 sequel. The first position is for a 3DCG (3D computer graphics) designer, while the other is for a level designer. The lucky developers that will be chosen to work on the game will be based at the company’s headquarters, in Kyoto, Japan.
The 3DCG designer will work on developing the game’s terrain. The level designer will mainly focus on the management of areas regarding game events, dungeons, and more.
If anyone out there is still hoping Nintendo is preparing a surprise launch of the sequel, we are sorry to burst your bubble. Since the first job listing is accepting applications starting with September 30, the game clearly has a long way to go before it’s finished. It is most likely that Breath of the Wild 2 will be launched sometime in 2021.
