Doom Eternal delayed into 2020

Share

Having to wait an additional four months will likely be disappointing for those who just want to play more DOOM, but as far as game delays go, this one isn't too awful.

In 2016, id Software and Bethesda made a decision to reboot the DOOM franchise, and the resulting game quickly became one of the more popular first-person shooters around.

The post also reveals that the game's Invasion mode - which lets players hop into each other's games to play as demons - won't arrive with the game at launch.

Doom Eternal won't be hitting its November 22 release date, unfortunately.

With twice as many demons being featured in the sequel as its predecessor, there will be new enemy types including The Marauder and Doom Hunter, while also featuring the returns of previous franchise enemies Pain Elemental, Arachnotron and Archville. It will release on March 20 as well for all platforms, including Nintendo Switch.

Additionally, they also announced that the classic title DOOM 64 will launch not only on the Nintendo Switch but also on Xbox One, PS4 and PC and will come as a free pre-order bonus for DOOM Eternal. DOOM 64 will also be launching later than anticipated, also releasing on the 20th of March next year, though Switch owners won't have to wait for that one.
