Exciting news, iPhone owners! Spore Origins may just be the first Spore game to come out for iPhone.
Who says so? Will Wright himself, the development genius behind Spore. Talking at an event in London today, he outlined possible plans for further iPhone versions.
"The iPhone version is really just the cell section of the game," he said. "It's got beautiful graphics, good music and it uses the tilting controls. But we may take other aspects of Spore and bring them to the iPhone later."
You read it here first, people.
Meanwhile, Wright also confirmed the likely release date for Spore Origins on iPhone. "I heard it's going to go live on the App Store this Friday," he said.
UPDATE: EA Mobile has got in touch to say that the go-live date for iPhone Spore Origins is actually Sunday, not Friday.
Update 2: We've now written a lovely Spore Origins (iPhone) review.
