EA announces the weekend of September 7, 2008 as the worldwide release date for the PC, Mac, and mobile editions of Spore, the highly anticipated evolution simulation (no release dates for the console editions are offered). This confirms the delay predicted by analyst Mike Hickey a couple of weeks ago (story), which is the latest in a series of setbacks for the game, which was even dubbed "vaporware" (story) by Wired (though one could argue that list is "tired," rather than Wired"). On related notes, Level Up follows this up with some Spore-mania, which includes Will Wright Gives Level Up the Scoop On Why Spore Is Taking So Long to Get Right--And Why It Will Be Worth the Wait, Part I and Part II, a two-part Q&A talking with the game's lead designer, and this Q&A with executive producer Lucy Bradshaw on how the Nintendo DS, Mac, and Mobile Phone editions of Spore evolved. Here's the announcement:
