The Quarry online multiplayer delayed

The Quarry, the upcoming narrative horror game from 2K and Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games, will launch without its online multiplayer mode.

In a statement on Twitter, the studio announced that the online features will now arrive via an update on July 8th, about a month after the game itself. The statement has all the standard stuff— “difficult decision,” “best possible experience,” “appreciate your understanding”—that essentially boils down to the devs needing a bit more time to smooth out issues with online play.

While this is obviously a bit of a letdown for anyone who was planning to play through The Quarry with friends via the internet, it’s not a huge delay, and most of the game’s will still be playable on launch day. You can still go through the story solo, via couch co-op, or in the movie mode, in which the game plays itself.

Set in Hackett’s Quarry in upstate New York, The Quarry follows a group of nine camp counselors through a branching story inspired by classic slasher films, with your choices as a player determining who lives and dies. Similar to Supermassive’s other games, Until Dawn and The Dark Pictures Anthology, the cast includes some recognizable faces from Hollywood, including Justice Smith, Ariel Winter, and David Arquette.

The Quarry, sans online features, launches June 10th on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
