UK, May 9, 2007 - It seems there may be bad news for those anticipating Will Wright's latest opus, Spore, this year - Electronic Arts has announced the game mightn't see a release until 2009.

As part of its post-earnings report, according to Reuters, EA has removed Spore from its financial projections for the fiscal year ending in March 2008, noting that the game could be delayed until fiscal 2009 - which ends in March 2009.

Originally, the PC game had been touted to appear this year - along with a rumoured DS version - however this now looks highly unlikely.

EA also reported that its net revenue for fiscal 2007 was a mighty $3.091 billion - up five percent on the previous year - and gross profits weighed in at $1.879 billion. Although we guess that information probably won't cheer you up about Spore.


Well this sucks. icon_sad.gif

It must be a complex game to make. I prefer that they work on it to make it an enjoyable game. I don't want a thrown game on the market only to make money and be full of bugs/incomplete.

Can't say I'm to surprised, good games just like Spore usually get delayed, it's to put us on the edge so we buy it right away...or it's so they can make the game even better...which is good. icon_smile.gif

WHAT! I thought they said Summer of 07, possibly 08. They just keep stalling. Spore looks awesome too!

I can see this turning into 'Stalker'.

It was hyped about for so long and the dates which it was due just kept going up until it eventually came out and it...well it wasn't that good.

I'm disappointed, but it wasn't much of a surprise. I'm sure once it does come out it'll be great. In Miyamoto's words "A delayed game is eventually good; a bad game is bad forever."

Um, guys. Fiscal 2009 ends in March 2009. Which means that most of it is in 2008.

It's not that bad. But the delay still annoys me.

wtf... sif they wouldnt release spore in 2007... 2 more years?? wtf they could make spore 2 in that time. they're presuming spore will be a success. (it probably will be. but wouldnt it be smarter to release it now and see how the public feels. i mean, they spend all this time but if noone buys it in 2009 when other crazy games get made, well... thats a lotta money and time being thrown away)

Gah, I was looking forward to Spore being one of the top games of 2007, oh well I suppose the game can only get better I just hope that EA don't wait too long, eventually the hype will die down like Duke Nukem (10 years lol). I suppose the question is: how much better can they make it in the time that it's delayed? Even at GDC it looked pretty damn nice, so is it worth waiting this long for a little bit of improvement versus just releasing a patch in the future if they really feel the need to.

You whats funny? You could have told me that someone on the the General Gaming section replied to the Spore Delay thread saying "ah.. didnt look that gd anywayz.", and my immediate guess would have been it was made by #CaMer0n.

Keep at it, your the kind of guy I love to hate icon_biggrin.gif
