What's Next For 'The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild'?

As The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild continues to receive nominations and awards, gamers may be thinking about what will come next to the game.

In mid-December, director Hidemaro Fujibayashi hinted that more DLCs will be coming, but producer Eiji Aonuma later confirmed that there will be no third DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild.
