Despite Deltarune: Chapter 2 being released by itself, series creator Toby Fox has said that his goal is to have Chapters 3, 4, and 5 arrive at the same time.
Toby Fox shared the news on Deltarune.com following the release of Deltarune: Chapter 2 and said that, while he had originally planned on releasing new chapters only when all of them were finished, he realized that “it’s hard both for creators and fans to go a long time without a release.”
Fox also shared that Chapters 3, 4, and 5 will be when he “will ask for people to buy the game” at a price that is currently unknown but will be more than Undertale, which currently costs $14.99.
Fox released both Deltarune Chapter 1 and 2 for free and has asked that players (who can afford it!) should buy another indie game to support smaller developers. Additionally, those who want to support Toby Fox can purchase the soundtracks to Undertale and both Deltarune chapters from Bandcamp.
“Just one request – please remember, games like this aren’t normally free,” Fox wrote. “If you can afford it, spend the money you saved from getting this game for free by supporting other indie devs. If you really want to give me money, buy the soundtrack from Bandcamp. Thank you.”
Deltarune: Chapter 2’s launch was a surprising one that was announced at Undertale’s 6th-anniversary celebration event only a few days ago. Deltarune, according to Fox, was much harder to develop for than Undertale due to “the complexity of new systems, plotlines, and graphics.”
