DOOM Eternal Delayed

Steam now lists March 20, 2020 as the release date for DOOM Eternal, the shooter sequel that was previously expected next month. A tweet by id Software also announces the game's Invasion Mode will now come "soon" after the release as a free update, the Switch edition will be delayed even further, and that DOOM 64 is now coming to all platforms as a preorder bonus. Here's the explanation:

Throughout development of DOOM Eternal, our goal has been to deliver a game that exceeds your greatest expectations across the board.

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 to March 20, 2020. We know many fans will be disappointed by this delay, but we are confident that DOOM Eternal will deliver a gaming experience that's worth the wait.

In addition to shifting the DOOM Eternal launch date, we've made a couple of other changes we wanted you to know about:

  • Invasion Mode, which will allow you to enter another player's games as a playable demon, will release as a free update shortly after launch.
  • DOOM Eternal for Nintendo Switch will release after other platforms. We will announce that date in the future.
  • DOOM 64 will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in addition to Nintendo Switch. We are adding DOOM 64 as a pre-order bonus for DOOM Eternal on all platforms so you'll be able to download and play this classic game, for free, just for pre-ordering DOOM Eternal. DOOM 64 will be released on March 20, 2020 on all platforms.

We are grateful to every DOOM fan for your dedication and support we can't wait to rip-and-tear right alongside you.

They must squeeze in the day one dlc and microtransactions somehow. And if it ain't finished with those implementations they must delay it.

NOOOOO
DOOM 2016 is my most played game of the last decade while RDR2 was the greatest disappointment.

Um, newsflash, bruh: Doom is like the most basic, simplistic, simpleton Beavis & Butthead shooter ever made.

I am not sure you are aware but they have updated the engine a smidge since 1993. Changes with the lighting or something.

Hmm...Invasion mode removed from the initial release and the entire game delayed? Sounds like Invasion Mode is trickier than they thought and requires some significant game mechanic modifications and they want to make sure the modified game is solid without it before adding something that has proven to be unstable in the current version.

Bummer. And, I am already selling off a lot of my Team Fortress 2 items to generate the $60 for the pre-purchase that I was going to make soon after. I can wait...who knows...they may reduce the price or offer a more desirable bonus besides something 22 years old.

If there was a choice between Doom Eternal and RDR2 on PC, I'd bet 9 out of 10 times the choice would go to Doom. RDR2 has been out on consoles for quite a while now and everyone knows it's a slow paced walking sim. Everyone has heard about it being "boring" but good looking. Doom is anything BUT boring and good looking to boot. RDR is NO threat to Doom.

"uh-huh-huh, look, dude, a demon... *boom* *boom* *boom* ... uh-huh-huh-huh-huh, look, dude, a dead demon huhuhuhuhuhuhuhhuhuhuhuhuhuhuuhuhuhuuhuhuh"

^ this is Doom and LOOOOOL that they can't even release the most simple kind of shit game like this on time since most of the competent people like Carmack left the company for greener pastures.

Haha. Bethesda sees Rockstar announce RDR2 for the PC for November 5th, and they go "NOOOOOOPE" and delay to March 2020.

When like 18 other mainstream AAA titles come out. Clever.




I don't see RDR2 for PC making any difference to this delay at all. The fact that the invasion mode won't even make March 20 2020 delay shows that this game is just not ready. It's not like some small unknown game that needs all the help it can get. This is Doom. This was going to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest for many, games of this year.

Sucks how Doom 64 is tied to Eternal's release. I'd rather pay for it to get it now and then focus on Eternal later.
