I'm guessing they'll aim for Christmas and hit in the Sping of 2006.

My bet goes on this year.  They'd be crazy (if the game is as done as it looks) not to release this for the xmas season.  In addition, if B&W2 ships like it's supposed to, EA will want a big holiday unique game as well.

I say next year based entirely on the fact that a later release will annoy me.

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Let's be realistic.  Games usually have a website of their game months or even a year before they come out.  This game has no chance of coming out soon until an official website is up.

Besides that, there's been very little publicity for the game; not many people know about it. Even the know-it-all guys at my EB were like, "Spore? What?"
I'm always spreading the word of Spore, even complete strangers. I'm like a missionary.  :D
And then there's the fact that the game's going to be shown behind closed doors at E3. That just seems like they don't want to do a wide open and flashy showing to me.

Yeah, maybe later. A good bit later.
Though it's nice to hope.

I suppose that could happen.  They could be avoiding the overhype syndrome by practicing limited advertising and campaigning.  Spore is going to be such a prolific game upon release that perhaps they hope it will mushroom in quite the way The Sims did.  Though none of Will's games (aside from the Sims series) has had much of a stink raised about it.  Perhaps Spore is going to be no different (while simultaneously being a masterpiece, like lots of Will's games).

I'm guessing atleast 18 months. Most game projects seem to be about 2 years in length. From what I've seen in the screenshots, those could be some placeholder actions that take place. (I still hope the cities won't be that large like in that one screenshot, but of course, that could just be a placeholder, too).

The funny thing about programming is, you could have a basic core program that runs smoothly, and could even be the game itself (or an actual business software for that matter) if not for its' lack of features, but once you start adding to it, the bugs start coming. Toss system memory into the mix, and you're delving into the unknown sometimes.
