Will Wright's life-building opus Spore won't be released until late 2007, the Maxis veteran's revealed.

"We're saying the second half of next year for now," he said in a recent interview.

However the game will be on hand at Leipzig, along with its creator, with demos going on so that people can experiment with the tools.

Spore, on the incredibly unlikely off-chance you're not aware, is a mixture of creative tools and life sim, which allows you to hand-craft your own species and then guide them through various stages of evolution - right up to the point of interstellar travel, diplomacy and war.

It's Will Wright's first big truly original title since The Sims.
