Straight off the heels of the two DLC packs for Zelda: Breath of the Wild releasing, it looks like Nintendo has already begun production on the next Legend of Zelda game.
Nintendo is hiring a level designer for The Legend of Zelda series, which means that the game must have started production in some form. The candidate will create events/dungeons/fields/enemies all the way from design to actually implementing them into the game.

It’s hard to know exactly what this means in terms of development. It’s unlikely that we’ll see a new Zelda game until 2020 at the earliest, but it’ll be interesting to see if they opt to do something as big as Breath of the Wild or potentially something a little more traditional like a top-down Zelda game.
If the role happens to suit you, you should know that it’s a contract position with no guarantee of permanent employment. The salary can range anywhere from $34,766 to $74,107 USD and Nintendo will also pay for you to move as well as a housing allowance. The listing is HERE.
