Getting more and more worried about Doom Eternal on Switch

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Getting more and more worried about Doom Eternal on Switch

The game is supposedly just 2 and a half months away, and I still can't find it for preorder anywhere. Bethesda Support won't reply when asked about it.

It was conspicuously missing from the recent Direct, which had brief looks at a lot of far less noteworthy third party games and even included a Bethesda spokesperson who only mentioned Doom 64.

It's my most anticipated game, and the silence is starting to really worry me.

Well, that list dosent include it because it just shows the games that appeared in the direct, but yeah, its kind of weird.



RIP Doom Eternal on the Switch, maybe just delayed.



I know... my English sucks.

Probably just delayed.
Off topic, if you havent played Ni No Kuni WOWW, I very much recommend it.



That image was for specifically anything announced or shown in the latest Direct, not a general upcoming games list.

*Slaps forehead* I'm an idiot, I didn't even notice this was only games from the Direct.



You can pre order the game off amazon.

So I see, but even there it's lacking even cover art, while at most every other outlet I've checked its like it doesn't exist, with only PS4, Xbone, and PC versions listed. 

It's not showing on the eshop "coming soon" list either. I brushed this off back when it was ages away, figuring it was just the usual treatment third party Switch ports get, but with it's release drawing near, I can't help but feel concerned.

It's total absence from the recent Direct and even the timing of Doom 64 are suspicious too; it's almost like they're positioning Doom 64 as an apology; "sorry about Eternal, have this instead."



The Direct didn't include Contra: Rouge Corps either. Found that a bit weird.



I know your profile says you are in Australia so it might not mean anything for you but the preorder for the Switch version is live on Gamestop's website. Maybe that'll alleviate some worry?
