The Switch version also isn't up for preorder at any outlet I've checked, even overseas; Best Buy had a page up for it, but have removed it.

Though I am super keen to play it, I actually wouldn't mind a delay as I already have so many games to play in the second half of this year I won't have time for them all. I just really, really hope it doesn't get canned as it's one of my most wanted games.

I have had mine preordered on Amazon since E3 with the same day and date release as the other versions listed.

Well, that's something I guess, though the fact that even there it doesn't have any box art is weird.

I dunno, the whole thing just feels fishy, with even Nintendo's official site not featuring it.

I checked the German version of Bethesda.net and the Doom Eternal game was only listed for PC, PS4 and XB1 in the search result. It's time to panic, people!

I'm on the English version now, and much like the whole general situation, it's a fucking mess. The text says "coming to Nintendo Switch" and the images even include a Switch box, but when you try to preorder the only options that come up are PC, PS4, Xbox One. I even lied about my country to see if I could find a Switch preorder from another region, but nothing, anywhere.



It'd be sad if this doesn't become one of the few releases on parity with other consoles but I'd prefer them to polish it first before bringing an unworked mess ^^ Also, the release schedule is so crammed already that I don't think I'll jump on it day one ...

Google paid them not to put it on Switch. They're going to start holding games hostage till Nintendo agree to put a Stadia App on the Switch.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 10m, Switch - 21.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

I'm not as such worried about it. But I'm not in the target audience in the first place, so I wouldn't be buying, nomatter the framerate they achieved.

I think it's nice to see the games arrive at the same time as other versions.
But naturally, I also hope the players are satisfied, as for the core gamer market on Switch to not completely die off.

I think Switch would benefit from Stadia.

I went to pre-order it on Amazon with Witcher3, but It's not listed that I can find.



There is literally hundreds of games missing from that picture. No need to panic.

Sure.  But, there no big names missing except Doom.  It is possible it was just an oversight.  But, combined with the other factors mentioned in this thread....



I swear I'm fucking cursed haha.

Every game I get super hyped for goes off the rails. BOTW? Delayed from 2015 to 2016 to 2017. Bayonetta 3? Revealed in 2017 and they've still shown us not a second of gameplay. Metroid Prime 4? Restarted after 1.5 years, probably not coming til like 2024. It'd be in line with my usual luck if Doom Eternal was canned for Switch.
