Weeks before DOOM Eternal’s release Bethesda and id Software have pushed the release date. It’ll now release this March 2020.

The news comes from the official twitter account for DOOM.

“Throughout the development of DOOM Eternal, our goal has been to deliver a game that exceeds your greatest expectations across the board,” said id Software in a statement accompanying the delay announcement. “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 worth the wait.”

Bethesda is taking a major risk as March 2020 is where acclaimed titles such as Cyberpunk 2077, Final Fantasy VII: Remakeand The Last of Us: Part Iwill launch. However, considering Bethesda’s already infamous notoriety following Fallout 76 releasing anything but a nearly bug-free game is paramount. Not to mention the microtransaction filled mess that was Wolfenstein: Youngblood.

Bethesda needs a game to redeem themselves and Doom Eternal could be that game. I just hope it works and isn’t full of monetization options.
