Marty Stratton recently showed up at PAX Online x EGX Digital and revealed that development team working on Eternal port for Switch is trying to make this particular version a flawless and pleasant experience for handheld consoles.

Bethesda officially announced for Doom Eternal to be ported on Switch at QuakeCon 2018 event during official gameplay reveal and tasked Texas-based developer studio Panic Button to develop a handheld version for Nintendo Switch.

There are some additional technical challenges to consider in porting of a high-definition game to Nintendo's hybrid console but Stratton promises that Switch version of Eternal is almost near completion and will be talked about very soon.

Panic Button has previously ported its predecessor title Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Due to unfortunate circumstances of COVID-19 pandemic, all employees are working from home and its taking longer than usual.

Eternal has made significant improvements over past titles and had a record player count on Steam. To complement its triumphant launch, id Software will be releasing a standalone DLC expansion titled The Ancient Gods next month.

Doom Eternal is currently available to play Google Stadia, Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. At this point, waiting for a Nintendo Switch port of Eternal has become so painful for fans now since it came out almost half a year ago.
