DOOM Eternal developer id Software has announced that the game has been delayed. Sadly for Nintendo fans, the Switch version has been hit hardest.

The developer has shared the following statement with fans, revealing that the game has been pushed back to 20th March 2020 on other platforms and "after" that date on Switch. The delay comes as part of an effort to deliver "the best experience" to players. The game was originally supposed to launch on 22nd November 2019.


As you can see, the announcement also notes that Invasion Mode will be added to the game for free soon after launch, and that DOOM 64 will soon be available across all platforms. Fans who pre-order DOOM Eternal will receive a copy of DOOM 64 on their platform of choice as a free bonus.
