Ashes Cricket 2013 cancellation reason exposed

We have disappointing, but somewhat laughable news to bring you now. It has been confirmed that Ashes Cricket 2013 has been cancelled completely, just months after the game received a fresh delay. The writing had perhaps been on the wall with some questionable graphics and gameplay, but now we give you a chance to see why publishers 505 Games have ended the project full stop.

We told you about the delay in July, but even then with months to fix the game it appears that it has all been to no avail. The game has been cancelled and all those that have pre-ordered the game for Wii U, Xbox 360 and PS3 will be given a full refund.

That’s not all though – oh no. The game had initially gone live on Steam, before being pulled after the cancellation. Those that managed to buy the game though are now seeing exactly why it has been cancelled.

Amazingly bad animations and graphics for a console game, computer AI that practically run around in circles during fielding, stuttering with the ball mechanics and much much more. There’s even moments when batsman are running through fieldersit’s that bad.

Check out the horrible footage below and see for yourself why the game has been cancelled. Let us know if you were one of the unfortunate ones who had this on pre-order and are now seeking a refund from the publisher.
