The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild was an unprecedented success for Nintendo and the new Switch console. No wonder that the planning for a successor or offshoot is not long in coming.
According to a job advertisement from Nintendo in Japan, the team is looking for level designers for the cult series.

The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild: 3DS offshoot more likely than Part 2
Unfortunately, more information is not yet available. So it can be a continuation of the main series, or a possible spin-off. There The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild appeared just under a year ago, the assumption for an offshoot, for example on the 3DS, is somewhat more likely. Maybe Nintendo will also follow the trend of remakes old classics and try to bring the classics of the series such as A Link to the Past or Windwalker to the Switch.
