Zelda: Breath of the Wild is in development but once development is complete, producer Eiji Aonuma would like to work on a multiplayer centric Zelda game.

Speaking to IGN, Aonuma stated:

I would like to take what I learned from Breath of the Wild and see if we can somehow fuse those learning points into another multiplayer Zelda.

For example, with Triforce Heroes, which followed a similar format of Four Swords, there was a multiplayer involved in that game. That’s definitely a possibility and we will continue to [experiment] throughout the Zelda franchise

Breath of the Wild will release on Wii U and NX sometime next year. It would be a while before the next Zelda hits but we would love to have a multiplayer centric game with coop with friends set in Hyrule.

Nintendo is focusing on creating a better gaming network for Nintendo NX so should expect a multiplayer zelda game to release on NX and possibly skip Wii U.

On a related note, rumor has it Zelda: Breath of the Wild might be a cartridge game on NX. Nintendo NX cartridges were mentioned by the USPTO in the documents filed for Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Wii U version of different games still mention discs while Breath of the Wild lists itself as a cartridge and disc based video game.
