DELTARUNE Chapter 3 Release Date, News & Progress Update

Are you anxiously awaiting the release of DELTARUNE's next chapter? Then we've got you covered!

DELTARUNE is, of course, the acclaimed UNDERTALE's parallel story, with pixelated graphics where you dodge bullets in nonviolent RPG battles. It's an interesting story, and the characters make it a game you just want more of, which is where DELTARUNE Chapter 3 comes in.

Update on 26 February 2024: We've updated this article and checked for the latest info on the next chapter of DELTARUNE.

DELTARUNE Chapter 3 Release Date Speculation

There's no specific release date for DELTARUNE Chapter 3 just yet. However, developer Toby Fox did recently give fans a positive update, explaining how Chapter 3 is effectively complete! The developer noted that:

Chapter 3 is pretty much content complete! There will be essentially no more changes to dialogue or gameplay from here. Hooray! On my birthday, a friend came over to my house and played through the whole thing.

It was very gratifying to see them laugh at all of the stupid jokes we've labored over for years. It took a long time to get here, but now it feels like everything will be downhill.

In September 2023, the developer took to Twitter (X) to explain that no new DELTARUNE chapters will be released this year.

So, there is no exact release date, and we know DELTARUNE's next chapter will not be released this year. We do, however, think that DELTARUNE Chapter 3 will be released next year, based purely on how the development is progressing.

For now, if you haven't tried the game yet, you can play Chapters 1 and 2 for free via the demo on Steam.

DELTERUNE Next Chapter Development Progress

So, how is development progressing already? We already know that Chapter 3 is almost complete. The original plan was to release DELTARUNE as a full game, including Chapters 3, 4, and 5. 

The developer has provided an update, noting that they will put DELTARUNE out for purchase once Chapter 4 is finished, explaining that:

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.

Hopefully, the developer will share a solid release date before the end of the year. Either way, DELTARUNE is fantastic, and we are sure many players can't wait to enjoy the next chapters!

Just in case you've been reading this and have no clue what DELTARUNE is like, then check out the spoiler-free trailer below.

So there you have it, an update on the release of DELTARUNE Chapter 3 and beyond. As soon as more information becomes available, we will endeavor to update this article with haste, so stay tuned!
