Getting more and more worried about Doom Eternal on Switch

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

Nooooo, I hate being right sometimes. Dammit. I knew something was wrong but I'd almost managed to convince myself it'd be coming in just a month and a half.

I just hope that "Switch version coming later" doesn't become code for "Switch version cancelled" like it has for Nintendo versions in the past.

Knowing my luck that'd be right, my most wanted game getting cancelled.

Switch version will not be canceled, I can promise you that.  Regardless of what has happened in the past, especially on a failed WiiU, Switch games tend to come over when they say they will (excluding that snowboard game).  Plus Bethesda has been treating the Switch well, so I doubt it would be them to start that trend.  The Switch audience is getting too big to ignore at this point.

Now a real concern is HOW LONG do we have to wait?  A month or even two would be fine, especially if it lands in an otherwise dry release date (which might be their entire strategy).  If they delay it a year, or even worse release it in a packed month...sales will certainly suffer.

I don't think it is going to be cancelled.

But, tbh, I would be worried for another DS Remastered situation, with the game coming 6-7 months after the other versions.

Edit: On the other hand, iirc Panic Button are the ones porting the game. If they delay furthermore than the other versions, may be because they have more games to port. Or at least I can dream...



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

I sure as hell hope not. 

And I don't think you need to "dream" about PB having other games to port. This year alone they've ported Wolfenstein Youngblood, Hobb, Doom 3, and Torchlight II, and they're already teasing on Twitter about how they "can't wait to share what they're working on next".

When 64 GB cart will release? Nintendo delayed. The 64GB card is necessary for big games.

Doom 2016 shipped on a 16GB card. Outside of Witcher 3, devs won't even use the 32GB card so I doubt they're waiting on the 64GB one.

yeah I know. I want all games available in the release on the cart. No more downloads content, it's bullshit practice

I want that too, but just don't think it's very likely in this case.

yeah... Otherwise, the rumors of GTA V seems like the case, waiting for 64GB card.



Honestly, I don't even mind the delay so much, (I have plenty to play for the near future) as long as in the end it actually comes out and doesn't go the way of Steep and Project Cars.

Seems like every game I desperately want gets pushed back indefinitely into oblivion; Doom Eternal on Switch, Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3...
