Maxis has confirmed that there are plans to develop a version of Spore for consoles - but said it won't be released alongside the PC and DS versions.

The confirmation came at this week's Leipzig GC, during a behind closed doors demo of the game. When asked whether Spore will hit consoles Maxis exec Patrick Buechener replied, "Not right now, but we see this as a franchise."

He added, "It just won't be at launch."

Developed by Sims creator Will Wright, Spore sees you evolving a single celled organism into a complex creature and eventually an entire civilisation. The game will debut next spring, and a preview of the PC version is now on Eurogamer.
