Although it launched about half a year ago, Switch fans are still waiting for the release of Doom Eternal. We still don’t have any sort of idea as to when it’s launching on the console, but the good news is that things are coming along.
During a session for PAX Online x EGX Digital, Doom Eternal executive producer Marty Stratton provided a status update. The Switch version is said to be “very close,” and Stratton noted how “we’re trying to be very uncompromising with what it needs to be because there’s a high demand for it.” He added that it’ll be shown “in the not too distant future.”
Stratton’s full words:

He also think it’ll surprise people given what Panic Button has managed to pull off on Switch.
Extra care is being put in to ensure that Doom Eternal isn’t compromised on Switch. That also extends to ensuring that the game looks and feels great whether you’re playing docked or in portable mode.

A delay for Doom Eternal was announced last year. Whereas it was originally slated for November, the initial release will now take place in March instead. However, we still don’t actually have an exact date for the Switch version.
In a recent interview, id Software’s Marty Stratton commented on the Switch delay. Stratton also said that it’ll be launching “a bit later” on Nintendo’s console, though did not provide a more specific window.
