Rumor: Darkspore delayed to May?

darkspore
If retailer web sites are to be believed, the upcoming sci-fi action RPG Darkspore from Electronic Arts could miss its scheduled March 29 release date to sometime in May. The Gamestop.com web site now shows a May 3 release date for the game while Amazon.com has moved the release date to May 31. Finally Steam's pre-order page for the game now shows a generic May 2011 release date.

The action-RPG based loosely on EA Maxis' 2009 life simulator Spore recently held a series of beta test weekends ahead of its planned March 29 launch. It's possible that EA felt that Darkspore needed more development time after seeing the results of the beta. If it has been delayed to May that means it will be entering an already crowded month full of major PC game releases. We have contacted the game's PR reps for confirmation of a new release date.
