As many of you know, Doom Eternal is currently scheduled to launch on March 20 this year for most platforms, with the Switch version arriving sometime later.
In an interview with Youtuber TiLMENDOMiNATiON, Doom Eternal Executive Producer Marty Stratton shed a bit more light on the situation, explaining that it won’t be a “huge delay” and it is meant to give Panic Button enough time to ensure the game runs well on Switch.
It’s coming out a bit later than the current consoles and PC, and really that’s just because we want to finish the game on those platforms and then give Panic Button the time they need to really pull those refinements into the Switch version. It’s not going to be a huge delay, but we haven’t announced the launch timeframe yet. Panic Button is a fantastic partner and are masters of the Switch.
We love Doom 2016 on Switch. Playing through on the Switch all the way from beginning to end was one of my favorite experiences. To have it handheld and mobile was phenomenal. I think that’s what we’re going to deliver with DOOM Eternal in all the same ways that all DOOM is fantastic on the current-gen platforms. We are very uncompromising in bringing it to Switch, and Panic Button is really on a great path.
