Nintendo Switch owners were in for a ton of Doom later this year — emphasis on they were. Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait just a little bit longer to get another portable taste of demon-slaying madness as Doom Eternal is now coming out in 2020.

While the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of Doom Eternal have a hard date of March 20, 2020, the Nintendo Switch version will release on a later, unspecified date. This is sure to make many fans anticipating the game a little upset, especially since the Switch version was originally to release alongside the others.
Fortunately, iD software is including Invasion Mode as a free update shortly after release. This game mode allows you to enter another player’s game as a playable demon.
While the delay is unfortunate news, I’m sure we can all agree that we would rather play the best version of Doom Eternal rather than a watered-down, rushed version. Some of the best games of all time received multiple delays before finally seeing the light of day. Breath of the Wild was delayed twice during development, after all. So hopefully this just means Doom Eternal will be an amazing game upon release.
Let us know if you’re cool with the Doom Eternal delay and if you are excited to try out Invasion Mode.
