Cricket 19 getting a patch 'very soon' on Switch

Bugs seem fitting in a game about Cricket

Cricket 19 owners on Switch have noted that the game is rather buggy and poorly optimized. This lead to fans tweeting Big Ant Studios about the situation. Big Ant has taken to Twitter to let people know that a patch is in the works, and will see release very soon. We don't have details on what the patch will fix, but hopefully there will be patch notes to share soon.

Cricket 19 – The Official Game of the Ashes, now available

Swing away

Melbourne, May 28: Big Ant Studios, in collaboration with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Maximum Games, is delighted to announce the immediate availability of Cricket 19, in both retail stores and via digital storefronts on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Digital releases of the game are also available for the Nintendo Switch, and a PC release via Steam will follow shortly.

“Cricket is in our DNA,” Big Ant Studios CEO, Ross Symons, said. “This is the fourth cricket simulator we’ve had the privilege of producing, and on the back of feedback from our enormously dedicated and vocal player base, we’ve been able to continue to build out Cricket 19 in every way.”

Cricket 19 features the fully-licensed Specsavers Ashes and Women’s Ashes, complete with photo-realistic players and all the stadia where this year’s matches will take place. In addition, the game features the most narrative-driven career mode to date, a full ODI tournament mode, and the ability to re-create classic matches in the scenario mode, before challenging friends to pull off impossible wins and spectacular turn-arounds.

For the first time ever, a handheld device has a deep cricket simulation, too. Cricket 19 is fully featured and playable on the go on the Nintendo Switch.

“We’ve created ground-up improvements in everything from the AI of opponents, to the fielding and batting mechanics,” Symons said. “We’ve always aimed for true-to-life authenticity with our cricket simulations, and we’ve really pushed that bar forward with Cricket 19.”

“This year sees the most exciting summer of cricket in a generation” ECB Commercial Director, Rob Calder said. “We’re delighted that Cricket 19 delivers such an authentic and realistic simulation of the sport to match the quality we’ll see on the pitch.”

Cricket 19 hitting Switch on May 28th, 2019, will be digital-only

You've gotta know what a crumpet is to understand cricket


As the Official Game of the Ashes, Cricket 19 features photo-realistic character models of all men’s and women’s players that will duke it out for the trophy. Additionally, there’s a full suite of gameplay modes, including the ever-popular career mode, now deeper and more narrative-driven, a world championship tournament, and the scenario mode, allowing you to recreate classic matches, and then share them online to challenge people to change history.

Cricket 19 is coming to the Switch on May 28th, 2019. The bad news is, you only get a digital option. Even if you get the box at retail, it includes a download code instead of a physical game card. Still, at least the game is coming to Switch in some form!

Big Ant Studios To Deliver The Deepest Cricket Simulator With Cricket 19 – The Official Game of the Ashes

Crikey!

Melbourne, March 7: Big Ant Studios, in collaboration with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), is proud to announce Cricket 19 - The Official Game of the Ashes. Building on the fan-favourite Ashes Cricket, Cricket 19 features all formats of the international game, both men’s and women’s teams, and all host venues. This includes the Specsavers Ashes, fully licensed for both England and Australia. But that’s just scratching the surface of this year’s title.

Deep enhancements to the AI engine mean that the opposition is more realistic than ever before. When bowling, the AI will suss out your player and team’s weaknesses, and target that with a concentrated bowling strategy. When batting, the AI will rotate the strike to protect weaker players, and actively look for gaps in the field.

New features to be added to Cricket 19 include a scenario mode, which allows players to recreate the greatest matches in history, and then share them online to challenge other players to achieve difficult run-chases, or play out a draw from a disastrous situation. Enhancements to the career mode build a story around your player; how you look in the news headlines affects your potential career trajectory.

For the first time ever, a deep, rich cricket simulation will also be playable on the go. Cricket 19 will be available on the Nintendo Switch, allowing you to play both single player and multiplayer anywhere, anytime.

“We have the most active and passionate community. Many of our players logged thousands of hours with our previous cricket titles, and Cricket 19 is very much built on the experience of those players,” Big Ant CEO, Ross Symons, said. “Whether you’re looking to enjoy a 20-year cricket career that takes you from the club level to captaining the national team, re-create an ODI or IT20 series or take part in the Ashes, or just bash some balls around with friends, Cricket 19 has you covered.”

“We are thrilled to announce Cricket 19 with Big Ant Studios,” ECB Commercial Director, Rob Calder said. “We have a huge summer of cricket to look forward to in England and Wales this year and this is another great way for fans to enjoy all the action.”

“The Ashes is the greatest contest in cricket, and Cricket 19 is going to be the most detailed simulation of the event that we’ve ever seen,” Steve Powell, Managing Director, Maximum Games UK, said. “We’re thrilled to be joining Big Ant Studios in bringing the game to English fans.”

More details about the new features and gameplay modes in Cricket 19 will be announced at a later date. The game releases on all consoles – PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch – in May, with an exact release date TBA. A PC (Steam) version will follow shortly after.
