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.

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.
Let's Rock!
