Trademark of The Quarry game by Supermassive
Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games appears to be working on a new video game project called “The Quarry”. First discovered by Twitter user The_Marmolade and later corroborated by Video Games Chronicles sources, The Quarry is unrelated to The Dark Pictures anthology. The studio only recently filed trademarks for five upcoming games in the ongoing series.
What we know about career
According to VGC’s sources, The Quarry is a project to be released by Take-Two Interactive’s 2K label and is slated for release later this year. In December 2021, Supermassive began hiring for an unannounced multiplayer project. The developer was specifically looking for a game designer who had experience with multiplayer combat, progression, and tutorial systems. “Balancing, lag clearing, and online economies” were listed as essential skills, and social features such as “guilds” and “events” were also mentioned.
“We are looking for a very talented, motivated and experienced individual to work on a new, as yet unannounced project,” read the job description. “You’ll collaborate with design, engineering, art, and animation teams to create diverse and compelling multiplayer systems, from combat systems to progression systems.”

Opinion: I’d love to see something new from Supermassive
Zarmena writes… According to recent reports, Supermassive is working on some sort of remaster for Until Dawn but I still find it hard to believe the studio would spend resources on a project as pointless as this. I’d like to see something different, non-horrifying from Supermassive but I’m keeping my expectations in check. That said, Supermassive has previously worked on Killzone HD and LittleBigPlanet as a support studio, so it’s not inexperienced with multiplayer projects.
