GameInformer sat down with Tears of the Kingdom producer Eiji Aonuma and director Hidemaro Fujibayashi to talk about various topics regarding the game, its story, the gameplay, and more.

In this instance, GI took the opportunity to ask the team of the possibility of a sequel to Tears of the Kingdom to keep expanding on the story even further, here’s what Aonuma had to say:

In that same notion where you did, earlier this year, confirm that there won’t be any DLC for Tears of the Kingdom because you’ve already accomplished everything you want to accomplish with this game – have you ruled out another direct sequel?

EA: [Laughs] Well that would be a sequel to a sequel, which is getting a little bit wild when you think about it! But as I’ve mentioned previously, with Tears of the Kingdom, we were seeking to build on top of the world we created with Breath of the Wild and really exhaust the possibilities of what we could put into that world. I think it is – to use a bit of a term – an apotheosis, or the final form of that version of The Legend of Zelda. In that regard, I don’t think that we’ll be making a direct sequel to a world such as that that we’ve created.

So in short, it seems like this is all we’ll see of this version of Hyrule. With three games based on this world, it is now unlikely we’ll get more.

But what do you think? Would you like to see another sequel? Are you okay with their decision? Let us know below!

I feel like two games in the BOTW era Hyrule is enough for me. I've explored the map twice, as well as above and below it. And it was a lot of fun. But I'm ready for a new Hyrule when the next game comes.
