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.

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.

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. Actually, I don't think anything else coming out this year is much of a threat.
