Developer id Software today announced that Doom Eternal, its upcoming sci-fi first-person shooter, has been delayed to 2020.
The reason for Doom Eternal being delayed has to do with the developer wanting to provide "the best experience", while making sure the project lives up to its "standards of speed and polish".
Doom Eternal Delayed Until 2022
Doom Eternal's delay isn't the only thing that's changing with id Software's upcoming shooter. The Invasion mode, which lets you take on the role of a demon and cause trouble in another player's game, will miss the title's release. Instead, it will be introduced in a free update "shortly after launch".
Fans looking to take the Doom Slayer wherever they go will also have to wait longer, as the Nintendo Switch version of Doom Eternal will now launch after the other versions. No release window was specified.
It's not all bad news, however. Doom 64 is now coming to all platforms that Doom Eternal is releasing on. Furthermore, it's now a free pre-order bonus. Both it and Doom Eternal are now expected to launch on March 20, 2020.
