But it was later revealed by Sony there won’t be a problem because of the virus.

One of the major things that were revealed was, without a doubt, the Animal Crossing, which has a lot of new features, as well as gameplay, has improved too. The game will be releasing in the month of March alongside Doom Eternal, which is one of the most anticipated games of 2020. By the looks of trailers and gameplay videos, it looks pretty darn good. This time around, the developers of Doom Eternal are focusing on story and lore. The gameplay is improved significantly, which made the Slayer more powerful. Hopefully, it will be well received by the critics as well as the fans.
