Publisher 505 Games Cancels Ashes Cricket 2013 for Good

After some shaky times, Ashes Cricket 2013 has been shot down permanently. It released on PC through Steam and was received poorly.

Now, publisher 505 games have mentioned that the sports title has been canceled. You can cancel games after they release.

Things started looking dodgy when the game was taken off the Steam digital platform, after its users massively criticized the game for being terribly produced.

We had some time with the game and it can only be resonated in that statement. Ashes Cricket 2013 is a mess.

Games barely function and with limited options, which fail to complement its PC platform with keyboard controls. More importantly than that, gameplay is riddled with bugs and glitches, the pace is slow to a crawl and you can’t skip its long setup.

Often enough, the characters’ limited animations would fail and break into hilarious circumstance, such as players throwing backwards, team mates spinning around or staying stuck mid-run. Artificial intelligence was as good as non-existent.

Ashes Cricket 2013 had been in development for two years, yet still came up with several delays. In a public statement, publisher 505 Games said:

The chosen developer, even with their many years of cricket game development experience, was unable to overcome the unexpected challenges that the chosen game engine threw up, even with multiple extensions to the development schedule.

Furthermore, they offer an apology to the England and Wales Cricket Board and Cricket Australia, as well as other parties involved in the train wreck. They said they “failed to deliver” on this one.

People who bought the game will be contacted shortly for a full refund.
