Supermassive announces new star-studded horror game, The Quarry

The Quarry boasts an ensemble cast including horror movie icon, David Arquette.


You might know Supermassive Games for Until Dawn, one of the best horror games of all time. Although the studio has had a handful of noteworthy releases in recent years as well, specifically, the interactive drama survival horror games that are part of The Dark Pictures Anthology, it appears that Supermassive still has some time in its hands. Case in point, The Quarry, an upcoming teen horror game by Supermassive for 2K games.

7 years after Until Dawn, Supermassive Games is going to scare the hearts out of gamers again with The Quarry.

Supermassive officially revealed The Quarry on March 16 alongside a teaser trailer that sets up a horrific night for a group of camp counselors.

The Quarry will serve as Supermassive's first new game since starting the Dark Pictures Anthology in 2019. However, unlike the anthology series, The Quarry is shaping up to be something more along the lines of Until Dawn, complete with notable cast members. Much like the 2015 PS4-exclusive title, The Quarry will boast a list of familiar faces that you might have seen in other iconic films. Leading the way is David Arquette, who you might know as Dewey Riley from the seminal slasher franchise, Scream, as well as one of the earliest Scream Queens, Lin Shaye. The Alien film's Bishop, Lance Henriksen is also on board as are Ariel Winter (Modern Family), Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), and Brenda Song (Dollface).

In addition to a very choice-driven narrative story, Supermassive is also letting up to seven other players watch along and join during The Quarry's crucial moments. Couch co-op gameplay is available where individual players can pick a counselor to lead the way.

With Supermassive still working on at least five more Dark Pictures titles - the fourth chapter, The Devil In Me, is scheduled for a 2022 release - it would be easy to expect for The Quarry to be released in 2023. But, according to the announcement trailer, the 2K Games-published title is due to come out on June 10 for both last-gen and current-gen consoles, as well as the PC.

If nothing else, Supermassive's upcoming horror game should end up replicating Until Dawn's success.

Many consider Until Dawn one of the best modern horror games. The Quarry could end up joining the 2015 title on similar lists.

Horror appears to be back on the menu these days. Earlier this year, Scream 5 debuted atop the global box office, becoming the first film to unseat Spider-Man: No Way Home with a sequel confirmed to start filming in June. In addition, Netflix also confirmed that it's going to release the live-action Resident Evil series on July 14. There's also Fede Álvarez's Alien 5 to look forward to in the coming years.
