Undertale developer Toby Fox has, on the 5th anniversary of the original video game, shared an update on the status of Deltarune Chapter 2's development alongside new screenshots. If you are not already familiar, Deltarune is the second video game in the same series as Undertale, and is releasing in chapters. The first chapter released on October 31, 2018, and it would appear that the second chapter will be completed in terms of content by the end of the year.
"Development started around March 2019 [on Deltarune Chapter 2]and a 99% work was spent on investigating engines alternate to GameMaker, which I used for Chapter 1," Fox states in the new update. "Without getting into the details, I decided a few months ago to go back to GameMaker after all. It still felt like the best fit for the project. So using Chapter 1 as a base, we've started creating Chapter 2 since May 2020."
