It took a little longer than a week, but Electronic Arts confirmed today that Will Wright's simulation frenzy title, Spore, has gone gold and it will definitely ship this September 7. Its iPhone counterpart, Spore Origins, will be arriving a bit earlier on September 4. Executive producer Lucy Bradshaw said:
"We are so excited to finally get Spore into the hands of fans and players. The Maxis studio has had an absolute blast creating Spore, but the fun is just beginning. The most engaging stories are truly the ones people create themselves, and we can't wait to see how players not only craft and explore the Spore universe, but hear what stories they have to tell as a result."
Spore, developed by Maxis Studios, will be available for the PC and Mac platforms. Spore Creatures for the Nintendo DS will also be arriving on September 7. Check out an exclusive hands on demo after the cut.
