Deltarune: Chapter 2, which is the second entry in the follow-up to Undertale, will be released on both PC and Mac on September 17, 2021, at 5pm PT/8pm ET/1am BST (9/18).
A short video of Deltarune: Chapter 2 was released on Twitter alongside the announcement from Undertale’s 6th-anniversary celebration event, and Deltarune.com has been updated with a few more details regarding save transfers and more.

To ensure your Deltarune: Chapter 1 save file is transferred to Deltarune: Chapter 2, players will need to see the credits of the first game. Chapter 1’s “completion data” will be created when you “go to sleep in your bed at the end of the game.”
If you happen to be on a different computer than the one you played Deltarune: Chapter 1 on, the FAQ also reassures that, “as long as you generally remember what happened story-wise, you’ll be fine.”
The much-anticipated release date annoucement came after Undertale creator Toby Fox was part of a playthrough of Deltarune: Chapter 1, and the extended glimpse of Chapter 2 includes a tease of what fans can expect in this game that is arriving around three years after the original.
What is yet unclear is how much Deltarune: Chapter 2 will cost, or if it will also be free like Chapter 1.
Toby Fox gave an update on Deltarune’s development in 2020, saying that this follow-up to Undertale has been much harder to develop for than the original game due to “the complexity of new systems, plotlines, and graphics.”
He also mentioned that he believes that Chapter 3 of Deltarune should be a bit easier to make as the team can use what they learned in Chapter 2 as a guiding light.
