Recently, disorder-free localization has been introduced as a new mechanism for ergodicity breaking in homogeneous systems caused by local constraints imposed by gauge invariance [1,2]. Here, we show that disorder-free localization can occur in genuinely interacting systems in two spatial dimensions. Specifically, we show that the quantum link model can become nonergodic by providing a strict bound on the localization-delocalization transition through an unconventional classical percolation problem. We investigate the quantum dynamics in this system by means of an improved classical network description  endowed with a time-dependent variational principle.
