It’s been a few months since DOOM Eternal released on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but the Nintendo Switch seems to be missing in action. Originally planned for release alongside the other versions of the game, id Software and Panic Button decided to delay the game to offer Switch owners the best demon-slaying experience possible.
According to the developer, however, DOOM Eternal is not that far from release on Nintendo Switch. Speaking with Digital Foundry, id Software’s Marty Stratton promised that more will be said on the game in the near future, as it is very close to release.
Marty Stratton also provided some new information on the development of DOOM Eternal on Nintendo Switch, which has been impacted by work-from-home conditions.
We’re trying to make it the best version of the game it possibly can be. So we’ve been working with Panic Button, they’re also – like everybody – work from home, so it’s taking a little bit longer to get there…we want it to be everything it possibly can be. It’s very close, and we’re trying to be very uncompromising with what it needs to be, because there’s a high demand for it
DOOM Eternal is an amazing first-person game and a worthy new entry in the series, so it’s nice to hear that all the features that make it so good will make the jump to Nintendo Switch. When this will happen remains to be seen, but hopefully it will be before the end of 2020.
DOOM Eternal releases on Nintendo Switch on a yet to be confirmed release date.
