Ashes Cricket 2013 Delayed

505 Game announces a delay to the release of Ashes Cricket 2013 to November of this year to coincide with the second round of this competition between English and Australia. They say the game was originally to be released this month to go along with the first round of the series, but that was a one month delay as well. Here's word on the setback, which is admittedly to improve the game:

505 Games, a global publisher of video games, today announced the delay of the heavily anticipated Ashes Cricket 2013 video game. Originally scheduled for release on PC and home console systems to coincide with the 1st Ashes series of 2013 in the United Kingdom, the release has been delayed to November 2013 when the return series starts in Australia.

Tim Woodley, Senior Vice President Global Brand & Marketing for 505 Games, said: “It is hugely disappointing that 505 Games has had to make this announcement today. We all had high hopes of bringing out a stellar cricket game during the first leg of this unprecedented Ashes year. But the fact of the matter is, we took a long hard look at the game as it stands and decided it simply wasn’t good enough in its current state. It was simply not worthy of the Ashes name.
