Deltarune Chapter 2 arrives for free. However, the conclusion will not be.
It was a sudden surprise to all when Deltarune Chapter 2 released last week. What was even more surprising was the fact that this chapter too, like the first one was declared as free to play.
As a refresher, let us remind you that the trailer for the first chapter, amongst several others had forewarned players that while the first chapter was free; they would have to pay for the upcoming chapters.
Developer Toby Fox writes on his site that this chapter was not initially meant to be free. However, he further states, “The world has been really tough for everybody recently. So I decided to release DELTARUNE Chapter 2 for free. I guess like a pet cat that drops bugs at your doorstep, I can, with some pride, show you the weird things I’ve been doing. I’m not sure if it will help, but I hope so”.

Fox further reminds players that games such as these often aren’t free. And he requests them to use the money they had saved from not having to purchase the game and invest that in games by other indie developers.
Speaking about his plans, Fox says, “My next goal is to complete Chapters 3, 4 and 5 for next time. Then, at that time I will ask for people to buy the game, at the price of the first 5 chapters (including 1 and 2). I don’t know the price yet, but it’s definitely going to cost more than UNDERTALE”.
Deltarune Chapter 2 developed and published by Toby Fox is the second in a series of five chapters of the single player RPG Deltarune saga. The second chapter, released on September 17, 2021 comes almost three years after the first chapter. The developer states the next three chapters will be released at the same time. However, no fixed date was given for their release.
