If you happen to play Spore and Darkspore, you may or may not have seen the notice yesterday on the Darkspore Forums that we will be shutting down Darkspore on the 1st March 2016.

This decision wasn't an easy one to be made.

Rest assured, the decision to shut down Darkspore does not have any relation to Spore and its services, especially as we spent so many months bringing it back online recently

I just wanted to jump in and assure you that Spore is going strong before any rumours start to the contrary.

Also yes, Darkspore is still a thing. Haven't you seen the whole thing about the DarkSPORE creature editor? .-.

Aww, that's a shame. I can't say that I have every actually played Darkspore, but I'm sure that it was a nice little game in its own rights. It's sad to see it get shut down after only 5 years of service.

Then, again, it was apparently removed from Origin back in 2013, so we shouldn't be surprised this is happening.

This is, of course, to make room for Spore 2: The Re-Sporing, right?

That's less likely than the Big Rip Scenario being confirmed.

Then get EA/Maxis to return to supporting and developing the game, and bring everything (the creatures, our Heroes, PARTS and animated TEXTURES, etc)

If Darkspore is turning into a mass extinction, at least get them to bring all the content into Spore so that Darkspore's legacy can live on in Spore!

I know, but there is a near-zero chance that you could succeed in doing it. So please, keep trying to do what you're doing, because we need all the support and help we can get if we want to immortalize Darkspore's content.

They're talking about something akin to an official version of Dark Injection, created by Maxis and EA themselves.

Well I'm sorry, but it's too late for you to discourage me, since I'm already succeeding:


So you can take your pessimism and put it somewhere that it actually applies to.

Sad to hear it's getting shut down... though to be honest, I barely played it a month after I got it. Played all through the closed beta and got it at launch, but I lost interest soon after (didn't even finish the game).

It was a good game, the gameplay wasn't bad, graphics and music were pretty good (loved the sci-fi graphical style of the game). It was repetitive though, didn't really stay interesting for long, I think that's why I never really went back to it.

I'll probly replay it at some point before it gets shut down, finally finish the game once. Thanks for the well-in-advance notice.


I assume there won't be any offline/single-player mode? Would be nice to go back and replay it...but then again I may never do so.
