Ashes Cricket 2013 faces delay in light of development issues

Submitted by on Monday, 29 July 2013No Comment

AC13Publisher 505 Games announced that Ashes Cricket 2013, the upcoming release in the hugely popular Cricket series, has been delayed so that they can release a better game at a later date.

It will now release November 2013 to coincide with the start of the return series in Australia.

Senior Vice President of Global Brand and Marketing for 505 Games said:

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.

He continued to explain that the team had run into development issues, causing the game to not reach the standards that the series deserves:

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.

They aim to have these issues ironed out for the release in November, and are dedicated to releasing a great game which Ashes fans are sure to enjoy.
