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.
