The Doomslayer’s return has been postponed. In order to “deliver a game that exceeds your greatest expectations across the board,” id Software has pushed back DOOM Eternal to March 2020.

The company also shared that Invasion Mode would be released as a free update shortly after launch. This is one of the game’s multiplayer modes, which lets you enter another player’s game as a demon.
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.
