Well, you should have started from six months... but whatever. I'm going with twelve to eighteen months.

As much as I'd like to put today, I decided to be realistic and put a year to 18 months. I guess we'll all find out after E3.

Well i would guess

X-mas 2005

Summerholiday 2006

X-mas 2006

This will be supposed to be the next big thing in gaming (and hopefully it will be) so they'll want to make sure they hit a sweet spot with it. I hope for X-mas 2005, but wouldn't be surprised if it gets X-mas 2006. Man, that would be ugly.

These days you've to wait for about two years on games when the first info comes out. Lets hope they decided to keep this one quiet and surpirse the world with an E3 200 launch! :D oh, that would be sweet :)

They'll probably give us their target ship date at E3 but I think in the next 6 months would be realistic considering how they've been secretly working on this for years.

A target release date - like fall 2005 or something would be nice from E3.  Personally i feel it will come out this year, Octoberish.

If they went out and said "We plan on releasing it in July '05" everyone at E3 would start hyperventilating. Imagine them dropping a huge bomb like this game in the 2nd quarter it would sell HUGE.

No it wouldnt those E3 people (And all of us) would be in hospital recovering from shock and 3rd degree rug burns from when we fell down... also if you own hardwood flooring or live in a cabin built by your grandfather "over fitty years ago" then replace rug burns with splinters

I voted 6-10 months but it will probably be in 2006.. of course the next EP for Sims2 is coming out this fall so if he already has so much of the game to show, it could be out by Christmas.  That would be the hot item of the Christmas season.

The Sims 2 expansion packs will be out every 6 months from now until the end of time. Also keep in mind that the expansion packs aren't done by the core Maxis team and sometimes done by an outside company (such as Digital Pencil). However, the "core" programmers and designers at Maxis are working on Spore right now from what I know.

I don't know when Spore will come out but I would imagine it will come out when EA needs money to balance out a quarter. I know that sounds cold, but it's the hard truth. Have you ever noticed the huge amount of games which come out at the end of March? And that many bigger games often come out at the end of the month? That's on purpose, it allows a company to get hefty profits for two business quarters (PSP on March 24 anyone?).

I have been closely following EA stock for years now and you can often tell when a game is going to be released by looking at their overall release schedule and profits for the quarter. If they're doing well, they will push big games back to a later quarter (i.e. Battlefield 2). If they're a little light, they will move a game up a bit (i.e. NFL Street 2).

So figure Spore to come out when EA needs some money. Hopefully that will be within the next year...
