Anyone hoping to get into some DOOM inspired shenanigans later this year may be disappointed to hear Devolved Digital has announced a delay for Shadow Warrior 3. Eager fans can now expect to jump in when it hits Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in early 2022.

The reason? Well, the game needs a little bit of extra time to apply some more polish. The hope is to jump from "99% awesome" to "120% awesome", according to an announcement tweet.

There have been several gameplay demonstrations for Shadow Warrior 3 throughout the year, all of which have leaned into its clear DOOM influences. It's looking to be a mighty fun time when it eventually launches in 2022.

If you can't wait that long and need your demon-slaying fix, then DOOM Eternal has a new update arriving later today which brings a horde mode amongst other goodies. Certainly enough content to bridge the gap.
