No new Zelda games for the Switch?

Sure, BOTW is on the Switch, but technically it came out on the Wii U and was really the only Zelda game on the Wii U, since Skyward Sword was on the Wii. There's a bunch of HD remakes, but not really anything new. Hard to shell out money for these systems when your favorite games don't get released until a few years later.

    There will be another Zelda-based game called "Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity," or something like that.

    For core Zelda titles, Breath of the Wild was a simultaneous release on the Switch (as a launch title) & Wii U.  Nintendo has done this with previous titles in the past as Twilight Princess was released on both the Gamecube & Wii as the same time.

    Right now, Breath of the Wild 2 is currently in production & there's no official word on a release date.

    There are other non-cannon titles like Cadence of Hyrule & Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition the Switch in addition to re-releases of the classics on the NES & SNES Online services, but that's about it.

    Please be aware that Nintendo takes it time on making most of their Zelda titles because it's a flagship series.  Many game companies with high-quality series can take YEARS & TENS OF MILLIONS (sometimes HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS) between releases.  Rockstar Games is a clear example here with the Grand Theft Auto & Red Dead Redemption series.  They generally take around 6-8 years to craft the game world, the characters & the storyline that draws players into while squashing as many of the game-breaking bugs as possible (I know that some bugs still sneak past due to programmers not having the time to properly address them before they have to push the game out the door for platform certification... hence the culture of "Day 1" patches that has popped up).

    Just be patient...  The next Zelda game is on it's way for the Switch.

    There is a sequel to Breath of the Wild that will be released on the Switch in development.

    No word on when that will be released.

    It was announced at E3 2019.

    There are other games out there other than Zelda, you know.  Some are Zelda-likes, some are ... completely different!
