Where does Breath of the Wild take place in the Zelda Timeline

Do we know, with clues in the game, where Breath of the Wild happens in the Zelda Timeline?

Are there at least clues to find out if we are in the Fallen Hero, Zelda or Link timeline?


Short Version
The timeline in which the story takes place as you see fit. Based on the other answers, many people have different interpretations on which timeline Breath of the Wild takes place.

Long Version
A new article from IGN contains information from an interview with the director of Breath of the Wild. Stated in this interview, the timeline is which this story takes place is based on the players own imagination and how they interpret it.

In an interview with Famitsu, (translated by Siliconera), Breath of the Wild director Hidemaro Fujibayashi says exactly which timeline it rounds out is “up to the player’s imagination.”

The current answer was right to say how it contains elements from the other timelines. This made it is unclear exactly where and which timeline Breath of the Wild fits into. Based on the article, the Japanese website of Nintendo’s Zelda timeline has been updated to contain Breath of the Wild. Oddly enough, Breath of the Wild is at the end and is disconnected from the other timelines.

The reason for this is because the history of Hyrule in this story went through many revisions, including elements that either fit perfectly or warranted a change.

“Hyrule’s history changes with time,” explained series producer Eiji Aonuma. “When we think of the next game and what we want to do with it, we might think, ‘Oh, this’ll fit well’, and place it neatly into the timeline, but sometimes we think, ‘Oh crap’, and have to change the placement. Actually, the decided history has been tweaked many times.”
