Deltarune to be made available for purchase once Chapter 4 is ready

Deltarune creator Toby Fox has provided another update on the project, including news about launch timing once Chapter 4 is ready to go.

Fox confirmed that Chapter 3 “is pretty much content complete”. And since Chapter 5 is a long ways off, the plan is to let fans purchase the game once Chapter 4 – which already “has a very substantial amount of cutscenes and enemy work done” – is ready. Fox confirmed that a new producer has been hired to speed up the rest of development as well.

Fox said in a newsletter today:

So, now that Chapter 3 is nearing completion… I think it’s a good time to re-discuss how we will release Deltarune for purchase.

My original plan was to release Chapter 3, 4, and 5 together. However, the finish line of Chapter 5 is still pretty far off… and I don’t think anybody really wants to wait that long to release anything. Especially me.

So, new strategy: No more waiting for Chapter 5. Instead, we are going to focus on putting Deltarune out for purchase once we finish Chapter 4. That should make everything a bit more reasonable!

Chapter 4 already has a very substantial amount of cutscenes and enemy work done. Also, I’ve hired a new producer whose entire job it will be to speed up the overall game development for future chapters. So, I feel very optimistic about the next steps of this project.

That being said though, I think I’m going to pause on more detailed development updates for now. Instead, I’ll just let you guys know if the development is getting close to completion, or if something funny happens.

For those who have yet to play Deltarune, the first two chapters are currently up on the Switch eShop.
