Publisher 505 Games has made the call to delay their upcoming sports sim Ashes Cricket 2013 until November 2013, with some frank comments about the quality of the game in its current state:
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.”

“Unforeseen issues which developer Trickstar faced in latter stages of development have meant that they have been unable to do the requisite amount of polishing and fine-tuning which any game needs. We owe it to ourselves, to our licensors, the ECB and Cricket Australia, but most of all to the dedicated cricket fans and gamers to put our best foot forward.”

“It is small compensation that we have the benefit of a second Ashes series in this unique cricketing year which affords us further time to work on the game and get it right for the return leg. We are confident that the time between now and the second Ashes series will be enough to add the final polish we believe the game needs. We are committed, as we always have been, to releasing a great game and we are doing everything in our power to ensure this is the case.”
Obligatory comment about the quality of the current Australian cricket team goes here.

Ashes Cricket 2013 is currently in the works for PC and console platforms.

LOL When I first read the title I just assumed they didnt want to sell it while Oz was losing so badly. Hopefully by November people will have forgotten about the pain that is the Ashes tour at the moment.

Real answer is that they're holding back the release until Australia wins a match so then they can put a happy moment of our team on the front cover.

Bigant Cricket 14 is shaping up to be phenominal. They should pull the plug on this game altogether and save themselves money and humiliation.
