The long-awaited Spore gets a date

One of the most anticipated games in PC gaming history sat in an eternity of development without a known release date, up until today. Finally revealed through a special trailer on the official Spore website is official release date of Maxis’ latest innovation.

Stated simply in the last few seconds of the video is that Spore will be available at retailers worldwide the weekend of September 7, 2008. Spore gives players the ability to create and evolve life, establish tribes, build civilizations, sculpt entire worlds and explore a universe created by other gamers using a variety of tools.

“The wait is almost over,” said Maxis Chief Designer Will Wright. “We're in our final stages of testing and polish with Spore, and the team at Maxis can't wait to see the cosmos of content created by the community later this year.”

Wright also sent out a note to subscribers of the Spore newsletters, and promised more information coming soon. “While we finish up the game over the next few months, we'll be sharing more information with you and other fans. As a newsletter subscriber, you'll be among the first to get new Spore information, screenshots, videos and other cool features from the Spore team. Check out our launch date teaser, and of course you can visit for updates anytime,” Wright wrote.

Spore will launch for the PC, Macintosh, Nintendo DS and mobile phones.

“Then they pop up and say ‘Hello, surprise! Give us your money or we will shut you down!' Screw them. Seriously, screw them. You can quote me on that.” -- Newegg Chief Legal Officer Lee Cheng referencing patent trolls
