DOOM Eternal Physical Release on Switch is Cancelled

The long-delayed port is "100 percent on track" for a digital-only release though.

DOOM Eternal has been available for months now on previous-gen platforms. However, its Nintendo Switch port was delayed indefinitely since last year and despite id Software promising good progress, there’s been no indication of a release date. So when reports starting going around about GameStop cancelling pre-orders, consumers were rightly concerned.

But don’t worry – DOOM Eternal is still coming to Switch. It’s the physical release that won’t be happening. Speaking to IGN, a Bethesda spokesperson said that, “While DOOM Eternal is 100% on track for an imminent digital-only release on Nintendo Switch, the absence of a physical release at retail resulted in cancelled preorders.” Those who pre-ordered the physical version will receive “full refunds.”

This doesn’t bring us any closer to a release date for the title but at least it’s still coming. It should be interesting to see if The Ancient Gods DLC, of which Part 1 is currently available, will be included with the Switch port. Time will tell but for now, we’ll have to keep waiting.

DOOM Eternal is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia. It will receive free upgrades for Xbox Series X/S and PS5 in the future.
