Doom Eternal delayed to March next year

The anticipation for Doom Eternal, the follow-up to the 2016 reboot, has been through the roof since its first teaser announcement at 2018's E3 convention.

Id Software has shared the news on the official Doom Twitter channel (via user Wario64), with an update that says "Throughout the development of Doom Eternal, our goal has been to deliver a game that exceeds your greatest expectations across the board".

There will be plenty of enemies and weapons at the Doom Slayer's disposal, including a Meat Hook accessory for the Super Shotgun-it slingshots the player towards and enemy and also functions as a grappling hook for navigating the environment. DOOM 64 will also launch as a standalone title for all platforms on March 20, 2020. DOOM 64 will be available on March 20th, 2020, the same day that DOOM Eternal goes live.

Doom Eternal is set to launch on Windows PCs, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia.

In a spot of good news, however, the company also announced that the rerelease of classic Nintendo 64 series entry DOOM 64 will no longer be restricted to Switch.

In an open letter from legendary developer id Software shared by DOOM publisher Bethesda, the studio confirmed that a DOOM Eternal delay will see the game slip from its planned November 22 launch into March of next year.
