Doom Eternal has been delayed into 2020. Id Software sent an announcement explaining the delay to March 20 of next year. The studio also shared a few development updates on various Doom projects, including the Nintendo Switch version.
“Throughout the development of Doom Eternal, our goal has been to deliver a game that exceeds your greatest expectations across the board,” the statement reads. “To make sure we’re delivering the best experience–for DOOM Eternal to live up to our standards of speed and polish–we’ve made the decision to extend our launch date by a few months to March 20, 2020. We know many fans will be disappointed by this delay, but we are confident that DOOM Eternal will deliver a gaming experience that is worth the wait.”
Along with the delay, the studio announced a few other updates. The Invasion Mode multiplayer, which lets you jump into others’ games as a demon, will be coming as a free update shortly after launch. The Nintendo Switch version will be coming after the other platforms, with a separate date to be announced later.
Finally, the recently announced Doom 64 re-release is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One. That will also hit on March 20, 2020, because it’s being added as a pre-order bonus for Doom Eternal.
