Ashes Cricket 2013 Delayed Again

By Dave Horobin, 5 years ago
Only last month, 505 Games announced that they were pushing back the release of from June to July due developer, Trickstar Games, rebuilding the game's engine.

With July now almost over, and nothing further announced in regards to the game's release date, 505 today released another statement confirming that the launch has once again been pushed back to November, when the Ashes Series returns in Australia.

Tim Woodley, Senior Vice President Global Brand & Marketing for 505 Games, had this to say:

It is hugely disappointing that 505 Games has had to make this announcement today. We all had high hopes of bringing out a stellar cricket game during the first leg of this unprecedented Ashes year. But the fact of the matter is, we took a long hard look at the game as it stands and decided it simply wasn’t good enough in its current state. It was simply not worthy of the Ashes name.

Unforeseen issues which developer Trickstar faced in latter stages of development have meant that they have been unable to do the requisite amount of polishing and fine-tuning which any game needs. We owe it to ourselves, to our licensors, the ECB and Cricket Australia, but most of all to the dedicated cricket fans and gamers to put our best foot forward
Ashes Cricket 2013 will is now set to enter the crease in November of this year.
