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,” the tweet reads.
Alongside the delay announcement id Software also announced that Doom Eternal will release on the Nintendo Switch some time after the game’s launch on the Playstation 4, PC, and Xbox One. Invasion Mode, a multiplayer DLC mode that lets players play as a demon in other player’s games, will also be available after its release.
