Melbourne-based sports game studio Big Ant has announced that Cricket 19 will be available from May 28, just over two months from the first ball of the 2019 Ashes series (which starts on August 1).
Cricket 19 was announced in early March and promises to build on 2017’s popular Ashes Cricket. Cricket 19 will feature all formats of the sport, men’s and women’s teams, all host venues, plus the 2019 Ashes, fully licensed for both Australia and England. It’s also set to include a “deeper and more narrative-driven” career mode, a world championship tournament, and a scenario mode which will allow us to recreate and share classic matches.
“Big Ant Studios games have always been known for deep customisation and flexibility,” said Big Ant Studios CEO Ross Symons in a statement. “With Cricket 19 we take this to the next level, with even more gameplay modes, more options, more ways to play and much more customisation.”
