Will Wright’s Spore Slips To 2008

Will Wright has said that he “didn’t want to make players feel like Luke Skywalker or Frodo Baggins” when playing Spore. He instead “wanted them to be like George Lucas or J.R.R. Tolkien.” Sadly we will all have to wait a long time to feel like anything when playing the game as it has been revealed the game has now being hit with a delay. In a conference call – most likely the same one where they talked about ‘Wii Spielberg‘ – EA said that Will Wright’s evolution sim is no longer in the company’s plans for the current fiscal year, which ends in March 2008 which means the game could well have slipped well into 2008 – if not further.
