Last week we reported
that various places had "May" as the scheduled month for release for Darkspore, but also mentioned we'd contacted EA for an official line on the game's reported delay and actual release date.
Thankfully today we can confirm from the nice folks at EA Australia that the game has indeed been delayed, but May was a bit of a stretch with the closer April 28 coming in as launch day for APAC. They were also doubly nice in giving us a bit more info about an upcoming open beta for the game.
Given the positive response and feedback received over the course of the Darkspore closed beta, an open beta will be available in April.
This open beta period will allow even more players to experience Darkspore before it launches and allow the team to incorporate additional player feedback and add even further polish to the game. There will also be additional closed betas where select players will have a chance to experience new game updates.
