A statement released through the Twitter of id Software explains, among several things, the decision to cancel the development of the Invasion mode, a mode that would allow to invade in the form of a demon the world of other players who are going through the campaign.
Following the celebration of the game’s first year with the release of the second campaign expansion, The Ancient Gods – Part Two, the next update would include the invasion mode. However, as the statement says, the team behind the game found itself in various complications following the pandemic, directly impacting development progress. Given this, id Software decided it would be best to redirect their talents towards creating a new horde game mode.

“We believe this horde mode will offer more diversity and challenge to the game.”
In addition, the team is working on the Battlemode to make it “more competitive”, adding a system of ranges, balances and new maps.
So far there are no more plans for future campaign expansions, at least not announced. The Ancient Gods part 1 is out now on all platforms, with part 2 being released later this year for the Nintendo Switch.
