The world recovered from a process of desertification? So Breath of Fire 6 passes 1000 years after Bof 3 then?

Sure seems like it. If so i hope they explain WHY the dessert was expanding, something that was convieniently left out of BOF3 and makes little sense considering the dessert was accross an ocean that it would be capable of expanding to other continents.

Could it take place before 3? Maybe Myria awakens or revives or something after this one, it kinda matches the whole dragons must be killed because they are too dangerous thing. After all they do mention that a dragon dude totally levelled that one place and desertification began.

Wait a second!

Considering timelines, get your facts together:

BOF1 is the legend of the first Ryu character we first meet in the Bof-series (blue-haired, dragon transformationed main hero) which is apparently a full-bred dragonclan member. In that world, the dragon clan, both light and dark already existed. The war between races, specially the dragons by which means was instigated the rise of the goddes of destruction (Myria) which had been sealed before by legendary heroes who grouped together. This is pretty much the small intro the game provides if you wait a bit on the start menu (you get a cinematic short story).

She is later released by the evil group plotting behind Zod's back (the dark dragon king) and the game points out to an unknown dragon legend (I will call it BOF-Zero) that already existed, which our heroes in BOF1 tried to imitate (including Deis who has lived the longest).

BOF2 has our new hero (we may assume it's a descendant of our first Ryu, or a reincarnation, which is more like a fan-made asumption of me)... Ryu! Which is a dragon-human breed (mother dragonclan, father a normal human who happens to be a powerful magician and still less stronger than his wife).

BOF2 clearly plays centuries after the first BOF1 series, giving away great hints like:

1.1# Our hero getting weaker (limited) dragon transformations compared to the first game instead of a full-on transformation due to having the power of the dragon sealed once more (and his half-breed roots).

1.2# Both dark & light dragon clans perished with heavy losses with the aftermath of BOF1 (considering the white dragon clan was already weakened due to being very peaceful). According to BOF2 they ended up merging together, saving both divided clans by combining forces and eventually sealing themselves deep in the world to stop DeathEvan and preventing future disasters caused by the over-powering dragon clan.

2.1# Our heroine's Nina from BOF1 reappearing again as a great-great-grandmother (if i remember right). Thanks to this minor fact, the player can make a close guess as to how many centuries have passed since the first game.

2.2# Granny Nina confessing it's her fault the power of their clan to transform into a giant bird was lost due to her engaging with a man from a different clan (which we all can guess who that man is... ahem. Thank Capcom for not revealing all the juicy parts ;)

3# DeathEvan, the final boss explains how he was an evil seed left behind by the goddess of destruction Tyr/Myria who was defeated in BOF1 to continue her world destruction in her stead. As well as leaving us players with an "I might return one day; you cannot destroy me who is a manifestation of negative energy"

4# By that time, both BOF1 & BOF2 world map were almost equal, and by that i mean the worlds were equally divided into its natural climates.

5# BOF had a true ending, where the surviving merged dragon clan stayed underground (?). And our hero (Hidden star protagonist, Ryu's real father) seals the gate to the underworld by flying township on top of the back mountain where the dragon (Ryu's mother) rested. And thus saving Ryu from a cruel guardian fate.

BOF3 follows up after BOF1, thanks to the small intro the game gives at the menu (showing a tale of the legend of the 8 heroes from BOF1) and if i remember right, according to game's story, BOF3 displays a 1000 years after BOF1. Thanks to the events in BOF2 and Nina from BOF1 playing a (minor) role in BOF2, we can deduce that BOF3 displays a few centuries after the battle with DeathEvan.

Why? Well maybe because:

1# The one major change that affected the future of the world was the fact that the demon "DeathEvan" was eating away the lifeforce of the world, which we could experience as the forests dying, including the wise trees (Yggdrassil). Ryu and co from BOF2 may have defeated the cause, but the damage was already done and it's not like the game revealed whether the damage done was recuperated/fixed or not. This explains the follow-up events of BOF3, where the sequel claims half the world to be a deserted, uninhabited living area, as were the inhabited areas were small (or maybe less than half the worldmap) compared to the previous BOF1 & 2 games.

1.2# Remember the last part of the world map in BOF the player can cover/walk through was pretty uninhabited (thanks to our satanic cult church). Same happened in BOF1 with the fall of the dark dragon country and the destruction of the few neighbouring countries/villages from the Dark dragon clan's invasion. As well as the fact that villages, islands or countries that stood their own below half the world map in BOF2 and BOF1 didn't make an appearance in BOF3 (though clans/tribes didnt seem to have perished/gone extinct).

In both BOF1 & BOF 2 their worlds were already partly destroyed/made uninhabited. That plus the rest explains why races in the habited parts of BOF3 stayed mixed.

2.1# Myria/Tyr comes back again (she resucitates) and she herself claimed to be the cause of the current world state in BOF3. She created that (lost)technology age to wipe out humans more efficiently. She was the cause of the dessert and the great sea splitting off the inhabited and uninhabited world.

2.2# it seems that after her return, thanks to Ryu and co from BOF1 (and mayhap the events of BOF2 regarding DeathEvan, even though it doesn't get mentioned; Myria the goddess of destruction herself starts off a campaign, creating her own "Guardians" which resemble gargoyles, to hunt down and exterminate the remaining remnants/descendants from the dragon clan (which i pressume descendants from BOF2) to prevent the events from BOF1 (as well as the unknown legend that happpened before BOF1 which i name BOF-Zero). This battle happened i think according to game story, a hundred years before they find Ryu (from BOF3) in the mines.

[NOT FROM THE GAME BUT RATHER MY OWN OPINION]#

It's a fan-deduction but that Ryu in the chrystal egg from BOF3 may have been a descendant from the dragon clan that stayed in the underworld. Either "That" our the descendants from Ryu in BOF2, which stayed above to protect the surface world did a good hiding job!

Its not clear enough xD damn Capcom!

Breath of Fire II happens 500 years after the first, this is officially stated in the Japanese game's manual.

There's no specific mention of any time gap between Breath of Fire III and any of its predecessors, either in-game or by Capcom. The only thing we are told in-game is that the "Dragon War" (Guardians v. Dragons) happened around 400/500 years ago, but this doesn't account to the rise and fall of the Techno Age, so the time between games is probably a lot longer than that.

the timeline in breath of fire as I recall only has two things confirmed: 2 and 3 take place after 1, but it is unclear if 3 is an indirect sequel to 2 taking place many years later or if it is a reboot that is only connected to the first game. Mikba's appearance, however, might point to the former, but other than that, it is pretty vague. Breath of Fire 4 is up for debate if it is a prequel to the first game or a different universe. Dragon Quarter I recall was confirmed to be completely separate. as for 6? hardly know anything about the game to give an answer,
