Spore has sold more than 2 million units, EA just confirmed as part of its full-year financials.

The Maxis game was tipped as a driver in a year that saw revenue grow 15 percent to to $4.2 billion.

Spore has now seen more than 100 million creatures created for the game.

While Maxis may be celebrating, however, EA probably isn’t: the firm announced losses in excess of $1 billion for the 12 months ending March 2009 today.
