Those looking forward to slaying some new demons in DOOM Eternal, that’s going to have to wait a few more months, as Bethesda has announced that DOOM Eternal has been delayed to 2020! The DOOM Eternal new release date is set for March 20, 2020 (nice ring to it, no?) instead of November 22, 2019.
In the press release sent out, Bethesda mentions that to “live up” to their standards of “speed and polish,” they’ve made the decision to extend (read: delay) the launch of DOOM Eternal a few months.
In addition to the DOOM Eternal new release date, a couple of other things were included in the same press release.
- Invasion Mode, which will allow you to enter another player’s game as a playable demon, will release as a free update shortly after launch.
- DOOM Eternal for Nintendo Switch will release after the 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 Nintendo Switch. We are adding DOOM 64 as a pre-order bonus for DOOM Eternal on all platforms so you’ll 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.
