This is where Breath of the Wild exists in the official Zelda timeline

As I'm sure is the case with many of you, the official Zelda timeline has never sat well with me. I was firmly in the "Zelda doesn't need a timeline" camp before its reveal, but the point is moot now as the long-debated true history of Hyrule and its three branching timelines are well known.

What hasn't been known is where The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fits into the whole thing. Obviously, the game is filled with references to prior entries in the series, from the remnants of the Lon-Lon Ranch to what's left of the Arbiter's Grounds from Twilight Princess to every location on that massive Hyrule map named after a character, town, or location from a previous entry in the Zeldaseries.

Quite frankly, given how loosely most of the games connect to one another, Breath of the Wild could have fallen most anywhere on it. But thanks to the official Japanese ZeldaPortal, we now have an official answer: Breath of the Wild sits at the very end of the record, unconnected to any of the three branching paths.
