We recently heard that the long-awaited DOOM Eternal will be coming later to the Nintendo Switch platform which had some fans worried. US Gamer recently caught up with executive producer and co-director, Marty Stratton, who explained to the publication why they’ve decided to release it at a later date than other platforms. Stratton says Panic Button and the team want to do the “right job” with DOOM Eternal on Nintendo Switch and also said that the end result is “gonna surprise people.”
“Our partner on that, Panic Button, I’ve referred to them many times as masters of the platform, and they’re proving it again. I really think it’s gonna surprise people[…] I see it all the time in the comments, when we release a video: ‘Can’t wait to play it on Switch, can’t wait to play it on Switch.’ I think people are going to love it.
“We’re having it come out later because we want to do the right job with it, we want it to be the highest quality version of the game on the Switch,” he continues. “[We] don’t want to be compromising in any way.”
