Recently re-appointed CEO John Riccitiello had a few things to say about the project and its progress slash delay. We say slash because putting a slash is just plain foolishness. "Spore is a title we have enormous confidence in. I've had the chance to review the title three times in my short return to the EA, and it looks fantastic. I will also tell you that its release will be right up [to] the bubble in Q4 [of fiscal '08], if not sometime in early fiscal '09, so we don't feel comfortable in forecasting it." But why the delay? QC -- quality control. We want this game to rock, so let's give Will Wright and his team as much time as they need to make this game the best it can be.
