In a conference call to discuss Electronic Arts’ financial results, they said that Will Wright’s highly anticipated evolution sim, Spore, is no longer in the company’s plans for the current fiscal year, which ends in March 2008. Most in the industry had expected the game to be released later in 2007, perhaps in time for the holiday shopping season. But it won’t be in 2007, at the earliest Spore will be released in April 2008, but EA has said the game could be delayed until the fiscal year 2009 that starts in April 2009! Recently Spore has received a final release date of September 7th, 2008, on PC, Mac and DS.
The game probably needs to evolve a little more. 😉
