I mean, I know a delay is good and gives the devs time to fix all the problems and stuff, but maaaaaan, if this wasn't the one game I was really looking forward to this whole year. A really hefty delay too and kind of a bummer that it's going to now share a month with a bunch of other games I'm excited for, but no can do I suppose. Guess I'm now really hoping that Outer Worlds and Jedi Order (and maybe Death Stranding...) are really going to rock my world and keep me happy for the remaining months.
Christmas has been cancelled - Doom Eternal delayed to March 2020
I thought it was fortuitous that the game's – I guess now, original – release date coincided with my annual leave. The delay feels doubly disappointing as a result. It was the game for me this year, too, so I feel you. The first few months of 2020 were already jam-packed with high-profile video game releases.
I mean, I'm glad they're taking the time they need, but it's a bit of a bummer. It means next spring is looking even more savage, but it also means one fewer game this fall. This is shaping up to be one of the most barren holiday seasons I can remember. Aside from Death Stranding and maybe the new Star Wars game, I don't think there's anything I'm looking forward to for the rest of the year.
Dammit! This was *the one* for me this year. The big one that made up for (what was for me) a drag of a year in game releases. Not that nothing good has come out, we got some bangers, but most of them weren't in my wheelhouse. And with BL3 out, what does that leave for the rest of the year that I'm interested in? A new Binding of Isaac expansion, I guess?
Well, shit. Like it's been said, at least it'll get some extra time in the oven. I just hope it can compete with all the other huge names dropping around that time.
Either way, I'm sure they have a damn good reason to delay this close to release, and whatever this reason is, I'd like to not suffer it on launch day and sour my experience. So yeah, I'm super disappointed, but I guess it's only 5 months.
Despite DOOM Eternal having been easily my most anticipated game of this year, this delay feels good to me. Now this year's other games can compete on a more level playing field, with some room to breathe. And DOOM gets to play with the big boys in 2020. Next year is really shaping up to be a banner year, between a monster stack of games and next gen consoles arriving.
