Publisher Bethesda Softworks and developer id Software announced that Doom Eternal has been delayed to March 20, 2020 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with the Nintendo Switch version releasing sometime after the other platforms. Previously set to release next month, Doom Eternal was delayed in order for the developer to deliver an experience that lives up to the team's standards.

Throughout the 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 is well worth the wait.

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


To make up for the delay, Bethesda is adding Doom 64 as a pre-order bonus for Doom Eternal on all platforms. Doom 64 will be released on March 20, 2020 on all platforms.
