DOOM Eternal Release Date Delayed to March 20, 2020

DOOM Eternal’s release date has officially been pushed back from November 22, 2019, to March 20, 2020. In addition, the Nintendo Switch version won’t be out until after that. That date is yet to be announced. This announcement was made via the official DOOM Twitter account on Tuesday morning.

DOOM (2016) brought this 26-year-old franchise to a new generation of gamers in a blaze of glory. It’s the only game part of the main series to be released in this console generation, and it got players hooked. DOOM Eternal was announced at E3 2018, an announcement that brought fans to their feet. E3 2019 had a playable demo that Sick Critic tried out. Our impression of it can be found here. This year, it was also announced that it would be available on Google’s new cloud-gaming platform, Stadia. Eternal was set to make a splash in the gaming industry.

This new Tweet features an apologetic but hopeful note from Bethesda discussing their excitement for DOOM Eternal and what it will be after a few extra months of development. They also highlight that along with the Switch version being pushed even further back, Invasion Mode will release as a free update after the game’s release. Additionally, DOOM 64 is releasing the same day as Eternal on all platforms, except for Google Stadia.  It will come as a free addition to any pre-orders as well.

So far, on Twitter, there’s been universal support for the developers. It’s widely believed that DOOM Eternal will come out better for it. This has become part of a slew of popular titles that have been pushed back to 2020. It’s accompanying Animal Crossing for Switch and Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Let’s hope that all of these games will improve with the extra time the developers are putting into them.
