Id Software Doom Eternal has been delayed until the first quarter of 2020. Doom Eternal new release date is March 20, 2020. Id Software sent out an announcement explaining the delay and the new release date for the next game in the Doom franchise. In the announcement the studio highlighted developments on various Doom projects. The studio discussed Doom Eternal invasion mode, the Switch version of Doom Eternal, and re-release of Doom 64.
Here is Id’s announcement on Twitter explaining the delay to Doom Fans.
“Throughout the development of Doom Eternal, our goal has been to deliver a game that exceeds your greatest expectations across the board. 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.
In addition to shifting Doom Eternal launch date we’ve made a couple other changes we wanted you to know about:
• Invasion mode, which will allow you to enter another player’s game as a demon will release as a free update after launch.
• Doom Eternal for Nintendo Switch will release after other platforms. We will announce that date in the future.
• Doom 64 will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in addition to the Nintendo Switch. We are adding Doom 64 as a pre-order for Doom Eternal on all platforms so you will be able to download and play this classic game, for free, just for pre-ordering Doom Eternal. Doom 64 will be released on March 20, 2020 on all platforms.
We are grateful for every Doom fan for your dedication and support—we can’t wait to rip-and-tear right alongside of you.
So Doom Fans you will have to wait a little longer for Doom Eternal. Id is know for making polished and addictive shooters so I am sure the time will be well spent creating a Doom Eternal experience that Doom fans will love.
