The standard release date for Doom Eternal is March 20, but the Switch version unfortunately won’t be making that date. If you’re looking to wait for a more portable version of hellish delights, then we have both good and bad news. The good news is that the Doom Eternal Switch release date is planned to be this year, 2020. The bad news is that we don’t know when it’ll be. There’s no officially confirmed Switch release date for Doom Eternal just yet.

The delays for the Switch release comes from the time it takes to port the game from the other platforms it was developed on. Panic Button is the team who are working hard on the Switch port, and they’ve previously Doom, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Rocket League and much, much more. The team has a lot of experience, so given time the port will arrive, and we expect it to still look and play wonderfully. 

There’s a good chance the Switch release date for Doom Eternal will be many months later than the PS4, PC and Xbox One versions, so if you’re really desperate to rend some demons, we’d recommend playing it there first, before picking it up again on Switch if you’ve got the cash to drop. We still reckon the Switch version will be worth it, because tearing the creatures of hell apart is a surefire way to ease even the most frustrating train/bus commute.
