Bethesda delays Doom Eternal to March 2020


Given that success, it was no surprise to see Bethesda announce a sequel called DOOM Eternal at E3 2018.

Invasion Mode, which lets you enter another player's game as a playable demon, will be added to Doom Eternal shortly after launch. "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".

As with its predecessor, Doom Eternal focuses on fast-paced action that encourages players to fight enemies up close and personal, further enabled in the upcoming entry by a "Meat Hook" grappling device that can pull the player closer to demon threats.

As for the Switch, Doom Eternal will launch on that platform sometime after the rest, with id Software saying it will announced a launch date in the future.

One of the most anticipated games of 2019 will now have to be one of the most anticipated games of 2020. It will release on March 20 as well for all platforms, including Nintendo Switch.

Doom Eternal previously had a release date set for November 22, meaning gamers who had pre-ordered the game, or just been building their anticipation, will likely be left disappointed.

Doom Eternal will now be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia on March 20, 2020.
