Bethesda has announced that those who are purchasing the DOOM Eternal Collector’s Edition will not be getting the stand alone soundtrack as it just won’t be ready to ship. The digital version will still be included as part of this edition of the game. A reason for the delay of the physical edition was not given by Bethesda and there could be a number of reasons including manufacturing issues. The company has said it will aim to deliver the soundtrack as soon as it is available for those who have purchased the Doom Eternal Collector’s Edition. In a statement Bethesda wrote:
Collector’s Edition owners will receive all other items in the edition, including the ultra-high quality, lossless, digital version of the DOOM (2016) Official Game Soundtrack, on March 20, 2020.
We will provide a digital ultra-high quality, lossless version of the new standalone soundtrack to all fans who purchase the Collector’s Edition, and we are working on plans to deliver the soundtrack as soon as possible after the release date. We will notify all Collector’s Edition owners who redeem their soundtrack code and we will update our official channels as soon as the DOOM Eternal Soundtrack is available.
If you wish to cancel your DOOM Eternal Collector’s Edition pre-order because of the delay, please promptly contact your retailer or point of purchase. If you are unable to contact your retailer, you may reach Bethesda customer support at help.bethesda.net.
This is not the first hiccup that has affected DOOM Eternal. Earlier this week, it has been confirmed that the Stadia version of id Software’s first person shooter would not run in true 4K on the system despite earlier claims it would. Fans have been waiting a while for DOOM Eternal after it was previously pushed back from its November 22nd release date. Doom Eternal will be sharing its release date with Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
