Get ready for another ‘experience’ from the folks that brought you Until Dawn and the Dark Pictures Anthology.
Announced early this morning, Supermassive Games revealed their newest project, titled The Quarry. The developer describes the game as a ‘horror experience’, which very much describes the type of interactive-cinema games that normally come out of Supermassive. Obviously, that’s not a bad thing, it’s just different! And being different is just fine, sweetie.

While this is just a short teaser of what’s to come, it looks like tomorrow will be the big day in terms of learning what The Quarry is all about. Based on the teaser, it definitely seems like The Quarry is a slasher-film-esque story. Considering this kind of this is absolutely up Supermassive’s alley, there’s no doubt it’ll be spooky, spunky, and maybe even a little crazy.
The audio from the teaser actually tells us quite a bit. The game seems to be set either at an American summer camp or on the way to said summer camp, with the camp counsellors and town sheriffs potentially playing an important role in the game. If the previous games from Supermassive are anything to go by, we can probably expect the cast of this one to be star-studded. And if they do go for the teen horror slasher concept, let’s hope to the gods that it’s camp as hell.
The phrase ‘horror experience’ has led some to believe that The Quarry won’t be a full game, but rather an immersive demo of sorts. However, the publisher of The Quarry 2K Games has also confirmed that it will be a ‘full-fledged game‘.
All will be revealed on March 17th at 9:00 AM PT, which is about 3:00 AM tomorrow here in Australia.
Update – March 18th, 2022
You wouldn’t believe it, but all has been revealed. Funny that!
The Quarry is indeed Supermassive Games next project, being published by 2K Games this winter. The story surrounds nine protagonists, all of whom are teenage camp counsellors at Hackett’s Quarry summer camp, who find themselves being hunted down by locals as well as a primetime slasher.
The cast on this one is, uh… super massive. Heh. There’s going to be a lot of familiar faces, including David Arquette (Scream), Ariel Winter (Modern Family), Justice Smith (Pokémon), Brenda Song (Suite Life of Zack & Cody), Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Lin Shaye (Insidious), and Ethan Supple (Has a podcast). You can check out the full trailer video below.
In a neat addition to Supermassive’s line up of games, The Quarry will allow for up to eight players to join in on the fun, with each pal taking the role of one of the camp counsellors. The choices made by the players will ultimately decide who lives, who dies, who fucks, and who doesn’t. There’s also a Movie Mode to the game, where you can just watch the game like a movie instead of playing the game like a game. Neat!
The Quarry will be releasing on June 10th on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
