The Quarry’s multiplayer was delayed as employees and servers had to be moved out of Ukraine

Last month, Supermassive Games announced a sudden change of plan for The Quarry – the game would no longer release with online co-op and the feature had been delayed to July. At the time, we wondered about the circumstances around this delay and now, Supermassive has explained what happened. 

While previously Supermassive only stated that the delay would ensure “the best experience possible”, as every studio does when delaying a game, the company has now expanded on the situation further. As it turns out, Supermassive Games has part of its team based in Ukraine, and the country has been fending off a Russian invasion for months.

The company delayed the multiplayer portion of The Quarry to help move its remaining team members out of Ukraine, and new multiplayer servers had to be set up in Poland due to repeated attacks from Russia. This was all revealed by the game's creative director, Will Byles, in a recent interview with IGN.

Even with the added pressures of moving employees out of a warzone and getting them set up in a safe environment, The Quarry's multiplayer feature is set to go live on the 8th of July and is in the final stages of testing.
