Will Doom Eternal come to Nintendo Switch?

Yes, it absolutely will. id Software surprised everyone when it released Doom (2016) on Nintendo’s hybrid home console, and as the studio prepares for the next chapter of the iconic series, we’re happy to say that Doom Eternal will release on Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, there’s no exact release date known just yet.
