Developed by Trickstar Games.
505 Games will be distributing the next Ashes game, previously developed and published by Codemasters. Ashes Cricket 2013 will be developed by Trickstar Games, which is a Melbourne-based studio. The game will be released next year for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Ashes is a tournament that is held between England and Australia and is known for the fierce competitive nature between these two teams, however, England gets pummelled all the time obviously.
“2013 is another big year for International Cricket and it doesn’t get much bigger than the Ashes Series,” said 505 Games’ UK general manager Ralph Pitt-Stanley. “The oldest rivalry in the sport recommences on 10th July 2013, with the back to back Ashes Series in the UK and Australia so it’s a really exciting time to be working with the ECB, Cricket Australia and such a great development partner as Trickstar on this product and we can’t wait to share more details with fans everywhere.”
“The ECB is committed to bringing new fans into the sport, and the Ashes Cricket 2013 game will do just that in conjunction with the real thing – the Investec Ashes Series 2013. Most of the current England side are keen gamers, and will no doubt be spending a lot of time playing it whilst preparing for the real thing come the Summer,” John Perera, Commercial Director ECB said.
