In a tweet today, Bethesda and ID Software have confirmed that largely anticipated DOOM Eternal has had its release date pushed back until 2020.
As you can see, the reason given for the delay is clearly that they are not happy with its current state and want more time to polish the game. In addition DOOM 64 will now be free as a pre-order incentive bonus on both PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One when it launches. The intriguing “Invasion” mode for DOOM Eternal will now launch as a free update post game release.
DOOM Eternal will now release on March 20th 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
