Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is the second Zelda spin-off in this style. Does that mean we can expect a Hyrule Warriors series as the years roll on? According to an IGN interview with Eiji Aonuma, that's not very likely.
"I do think circumstances could align like this again, but I don't think we're expecting this to become a series. We'd make that decision based on its creative merits, just like we did this time."
Producer Yosuke Hayashi was a bit more open to the idea, but it all depends on the fans.
"I think it depends on whether we get an idea that'll make all the fans happy!"
If this is the end of Hyrule Warriors, can Zelda fans expect more Zelda spin-offs down the road? Aonuma left the door open a tiny bit, but was far from confirming anything.
"Echoing my answer to the question above, we're always looking for valuable creative projects, but those only come about when several different conditions align. So, I think it's hard for us to have conscious control over the frequency."
