Something screwy's going on with Doom Eternal on Switch. This version doesn't seem to be up for preorder anywhere, and Nintendo's tweet about it conspicuously omits the newly revealed release date.
Looks like the Switch version could be arriving at a later date, digital only, or both.
Digital only is unlikely. A physical version was show in a trailer. Delayed is possible, but I wouldn't read into it much. Similar concerns floated around Mortal Kombat and that came out fine.
Ah, you're right, I just checked the official trailer on Bethesda's youtube channel and a Switch box is indeed shown. Hopefully it contains a cartridge rather than just a download code like Wolfenstein Youngblood, but you'd expect it would as this is a $60 game while Youngblood was $30, plus Doom sold a lot better on Switch than Wolfenstein.
I would not be surprised if it does come out later than the other versions, which would be a teensy bit maddening as I am ridiculously hyped for it, but hey, I guess if they need more time to make sure it's a good port, better that than releasing it on time but crappy.
