The 2010 San Diego Comic-Con geek gathering kicks off at the end of the month, but the hype train has already left the station.
A programming schedule for the show made its way to the event’s website recently, and declares an action role-playing game set in the Spore universe will be unveiled there.
“Maxis Studio (The Sims and Spore video games) has just announced their next project, a brand new, Sci-Fi Action-RPG based on the DNA of Spore,” says an event listing for SDCC. “Join key leads from the dev team, Thomas Vu, Paul Sottosanti and Lauren McHugh, for the first game reveal to the public!”
Word on the street (Spore Internet forums) says the game will be called DarkSpore (which EA recently trademarked), and will task players will confronting the nefarious Darkspore evil alien race.
Expect more details on the project when the show kicks off July 22 in southern California.
