Undertale creator Toby Fox has updated fans on the progress of Deltarune and its future following Chapter 2’s launch over the weekend.
Writing on his blog (spotted by Eurogamer), Fox thanked his team for their help in completing the chapter. He said “Although it’s no longer a solo project, I tried very hard to communicate my vision. I designed and wrote everything. I gave feedback on literally every single part of the game. Thanks to everyone, we were able to complete the chapter a lot faster than I could ever do it by myself.”
Fox goes on to reveal his plans for the series’ future, admitting he originally intended to release each chapter as and when they were complete. Instead, Fox has now decided he’ll complete chapters 3, 4 and 5 as one release next time.
Originally he intended to start charging for the game from Chapter 2, but decided to release it for free as “the world has been really tough for everybody recently”. However, Chapters 3-5 will be charged at a set price “for the first five chapters” as a bundle. While he’s not ready to price the package, he does say it will cost more than Undertale did. As to when you can expect the next chapters, that’s still a vague “when it’s done”, however.
Deltarune Chapter Two launched on PC via Itch.io and Steam on Friday. Though Chapter 1 is also on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, there’s no word when they’ll also get Chapter 2.
