Developer iD Software has stated that work on the Nintendo Switch version of DOOM Eternal is still underway and fans can rest easy knowing that the delay of the port won’t be “huge.”

Although iD Software and Bethesda have yet to provide a concrete release date for the Switch version of DOOM Eternal, in a sit-down with content creator TiLMEN, iD Software’s Marty Stratton says it won’t be long now.


“It’s coming out a bit later than the game is on current consoles and PC, and really that’s just because we want to finish the game on those platforms and then give Panic Button – our partner on it – 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 time frame yet, but they are fantastic partners. They are masters of that platform.”


DOOM Eternal was originally scheduled for a November 22nd, 2019 release date, but was delayed into 2020 back in October; while the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of the game received a new date of March 20th, 2020, the Switch port was left in the cold.

A recent trailer for the game was released a few weeks ago with no mention of a Nintendo Switch version, worrying some fans; however, news of port developer Panic Button’s progress should put those fears to rest.

DOOM Eternal launches worldwide for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 20th, 2020, with the Switch version coming sometime later.

All pre-orders of the game (on all platforms) will receive a copy of DOOM 64 as a bonus, which will launch on March 20th, 2020.
