Chapter 2 is available now on PC
Toby Fox, the brains behind beloved RPG Undertale and its follow-up, Deltarune, has announced his intention to develop three more chapters for the latter, following on from the successful PC launch of Deltarune Chapter 2 last week.
Speaking in a brand new blog post, Fox thanked his team of collaborators and revealed his plans to develop Deltarune chapters three, four, and five all for release on the same day. At that time, Fox will sell Deltarune‘s first five chapters for an undisclosed price — though Fox noted that Deltarune will cost more than Undertale did at launch. Chapters 1 & 2 are currently free to download, with Fox deciding to give away the latter chapter gratis as “the world has been really tough for everyone recently.”
“Originally I had planned to release chapters only when all (of) them are finished, but honestly, it’s hard both for creators and fans to go a long time without a release,” says Fox in the blog post. “So, I changed my mind. I think most people will be happy about this[…] So, next time you want to ask “when’s chapter 3”, you can ask “when can I buy Chapter 3/4/5? I’ll give you a lot of money… I won’t know the answer until it’s done, though.”
While Deltarune chapters 1 & 2 can be downloaded for free, Fox notes that this is not usually the case for indie releases. “If you can afford it, spend the money you saved from getting this game for free by supporting other indie devs,” he suggests.
