Doom Eternal Release Delayed to 2020
Here’s some bad news for Doom fans: id Software has announced that the sequel to the 2016 reboot won’t be arriving till next year. That’s right, you won’t be heading back to hell and blowing demons to bits in Doom Eternal until March 20th, 2020.
The announcement was made through Twitter, and the developers said that they would want to release a game that will live up to their “standards of speed and polish”. They also added that they are sure that the announcement that they made will disappoint a lot of anticipating fans but they are promising that the additional time would enable them to “deliver a gaming experience that is worth the wait”.

There are three other announcements shared in the post by id Software. One of which is that the Invasion Mode where the players can go to the game of other people to kill the Slayer won’t be available at launch but will come as a free update at a later time. The second announcement is that the game won’t be launching anytime soon on the Nintendo Switch.
The other announcement from id Software is that Doom 64 will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the same day when Doom Eternal would be launching. Doom 64 was previously announced to be launching for the Nintendo Switch on the 22nd. Also, Doom 64 will be available for those who pre-ordered the Doom Eternal as a bonus.
This November actually has so many big titles coming out like Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, Shenmue 3, Pokemon Sword and Shield and Death Stranding. Although the chosen date of March 2020 will also have some great games like Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Watch Dogs Legion and Bloodlines 2. We will know what will happen by then.
