“We have no plans to release additional content this time, but that is because we feel like we have done all we can do to create play in that world,” The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom producer Eiji Aonuma said in an interview.
The news isn’t too surprising as its predecessor, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launched with an expansion pass right out the gate, so not seeing anything for the sequel was pretty telling or at least hinted that the most recent Zelda title was not getting DLC; at least until or if Nintendo made an official announcement.
As for the future of the series, that remains to be seen, but Anouma hinted that the next game could be a third game to the world they’ve set up in the 2017 game or be something completely entirely new.
“In the first place, the reason I decided to make this a sequel to the previous work was because I thought there was value in experiencing a new game in that Hyrule place. If that’s the case, if a new reason arises, we might return to the same world again. Whether it’s a sequel or a new work, I think it’s going to be a completely new game, so I hope you’re looking forward to it,” Anouma continued.
