Darkspore console port hinted at by level designer’s CV

Industry sleuth Superannuation has turned up an intriguing reference to a possible console port for Maxis’ action RPG, Darkspore.

The résume of a level designer at Naked Sky Entertainment suggests the Microbots developer “worked with Maxis to modify Darkspore for release on Xbox/PS3.”

Interested parties have declined to comment on the matter, which is a lot more promising than saying the idea was floated and then shelved.

Darkspore is an action hybrid RPG built on the Spore engine, allowing for intricate customisation. The PC version was released at the end of April, and EA have previously made little mention of the possibility of a port to consoles.

  • Darkspore will be unplayable from March 1

    Darkspore will go, uh, dark next week.

  • Darkspore reinstated on Steam

    Darkspore is once more available on Steam. The action RPG returned to Valve’s digital distribution service overnight. EA has not explained its temporary absence, which added fuel to speculation that support for the game had ended. EA has pish-poshed such talk, noting that Maxis recently corrected a nasty error.
