However, Sony seems to have new plans for this IP: they want to make a Before Dawn movie first, and there will be a release there too. version of this game for PC and PS5 in 2024. The work of the British studio was released only on PS4 and millions of units sold. Until now, we have heard almost nothing about its continuation.
It turns out that Until Dawn 2 could happenbut this was contrary to the ambitions of Supermassive Games, which wanted to implement cross-platform approach. This could be the main reason why the said game did not make it to market, although there are conflicting reports about who severed the relationship between PlayStation and the aforementioned studio. Time Expansion media spoke with some former employees team based in the United Kingdom.
Several former workers said that Quarry was intended to be prototype for “Until Dawn 2”. “Sony basically paid them to make it as a prototype. Once the prototype was finished, Supermassive turned around and said:Let’s sell this Let’s see if anyone else wants it,” which was like the final nail in the coffin of any relationship with Sony. They were eventually acquired Google, which has been funding them for years“, he notes.
However, another version is also common: Sony has decided to end the relationship due to the multi-platform approach of The Dark Pictures saga. “Quarry” started out as a proposal for Before Dawn 2, but They didn’t have a license. They ended their relationship by releasing Dark Pictures on multiple platforms. As far as I know, someone else now has this license,” he notes. What happened next was that Google abandoned The Quarry, and 2K united with Supermassive Games to publish the said title.
