Immediately after its announcement during the Xbox Showcase, publisher Bethesda has confirmed that DOOM: The Dark Ages will release on PS5, day one in 2025. It signals a change in strategy from the Microsoft-acquired publisher, as its previous post-purchase titles, like Starfield, released exclusively on Xbox Series X|S and PC.

“Developed by id Software on the latest id Tech engine, DOOM: The Dark Ages is a single-player action FPS that tells the epic cinematic origin story of the DOOM Slayer's rage,” the press release reads. “You are the DOOM Slayer, the legendary demon-killing warrior and the super weapon in this never-before-seen dark and sinister medieval war against Hell.”
