There's no concrete release date yet.

The post also mentioned a few changes to DOOM Eternal.

Having to wait an additional four months will likely be disappointing for those who just want to play more DOOM, but as far as game delays go, this one isn't too bad.

As with its predecessor, Doom Eternal focuses on fast-paced action that encourages players to fight enemies up close and personal, further enabled in the upcoming entry by a "Meat Hook" grappling device that can pull the player closer to demon threats.

The studio adds that it's aware lots of fans will be disappointed at the news, but says it's "confident" that when the game launches it'll be "worth the wait".

Do note that Doom 64 will also be available for purchase separately. It will release on March 20 as well for all platforms, including Nintendo Switch. Nevertheless, I'd much prefer a polished experience than another AAA game kicked out the door before it's ready to be played.

Doom 64: Doom 64 is coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 in addition to Nintendo Switch.

In an open letter from legendary developer id Software shared by DOOM publisher Bethesda, the studio confirmed that a DOOM Eternal delay will see the game slip from its planned November 22 launch into March of next year.
