Big Ant’s fourth attempt at a cricket game will hopefully be their most polished yet.
Don Bradman Cricket 14, its follow up in 17 and Ashes Cricket all had their qualities but far too often steps forward were compromised by as many steps back.
What do you intend to do on Cricket 19?
A career mode as yourself or maybe a family member or celebrity. I’d love to do some career modes as my daughters. I’ve got one down for left-arm spin and the other as a right-hander, maybe a modern-day attacking batter.
Maybe you’ll create some leagues. I’ll be revisiting my Test league as England. I don’t think that I’ll over do it with the number of teams and might keep white-ball cricket for some separate triangular tournaments. You know I love a good triangular!
Maybe you’ll find some unlikely heroes. Adam Lyth’s 120 in an ODI against Nepal will live with me forever!!!
Who will you hand out international caps too?
As the anticipation builds, be sure to look out for my match reports and reviews coming soon.
Something worth noting is that Big Ant’s fourth cricket game, due for release as soon as May, will be called Cricket 19.
This makes a lot of sense. Just like FIFA World Cup games are extremely limited, Ashes Cricket could easily be dismissed by potential buyers as a game without much depth. With Career Mode and all the customisation available, whether it be players, tournaments, kits or whatever, the game will certainly possess depth.
Fingers crossed that Big Ant have ironed out previous flaws and will deliver a groundbreaking game!
Hi loyal followers… and new visitors, here’s my latest audio cast. Please have a listen to my thoughts on South African bowler Duanne Olivier’s Kolpak deal with Yorkshire, Sri Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya’s suspension from all things cricket and the release of Ashes Cricket 19.
I can announce that Big Ant CEO Ross Symons has confirmed that there’ll be a new Ashes game released this summer… yes!!!!!
The game will be released on console and will include the ability to upload photos of players!
Big Ant advise that they’ve been working on the game since the last one (A whole two years!) and that the game will have extreme added depth. Symons advises that it’ll be “… the biggest update in cricket games since Don Bradman 14…”.
England and Australia will be fully licensed and the players have already been photographed.
Big Ant are also making a licensed Big Bash League game.
