The online multiplayer portion of Supermassive Games’ The Quarry has been delayed until July 8 at the latest.
The rest of the Until Dawn spiritual successor will launch as planned on June 10, however, including the couch co-op and movie mode options.
Supermassive Games released a statement on Twitter confirming the delay but didn’t give an explicit reason as to why the online multiplayer was pushed back.

“We’ve made the difficult decision to delay the online multiplayer mode to deliver the best possible experience for you,” it said. “It’s not a long wait though; online multiplayer will be added via an update by July 8th.”
The online multiplayer portion gives control of the game to the host player while up to seven others could provide input on the dozens of choices available throughout the game.
The Quarry was only revealed two months ago on March 17 and sees Supermassive Games return to the cheesy teen horror genre in a much bigger way than The Dark Pictures Anthology games have.
Players will control nine different characters as they try to survive the last night of summer camp, and like Until Dawn, anyone can live and anyone can die.
It also features a star-studded cast including Scream’s David Arquette, Modern Family’s Ariel Winter, Detective Pikachu’s Justice Smith, The Social Network’s Brenda Song, Aliens’ Lance Henriksen, and A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Lin Shaye.
Players can see them all in action when The Quarry arrives on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series and One, and PC via Steam.
